Abstract : One of the central problems in non-aqueous electrolytes is the characterization of the interactions that exist among the constituent ions and among the ions and the solvent. This is an important problem because the structural, thermodynamic, and transport properties of aqueous and nonaqueous electrolytes and molten salts depend on the nature and the range of such interactions. In the present report, studies in some non-aqueous electrolytes are considered from this viewpoint starting with some observations of ionic association and electrical conductance since classically this was one of the first approaches and still continues to be one of the more important methods for characterizing ionic association in electrolytes.
