Classic Theories of Ion Recombination and Dissociation in Liquids
Liquid dielectrics, as weak electrolytes, have a very low concentration of ionic components. That is why considering the recombination process we usually take into account only pair interactions. The recombination rate is determined by the slowest process of ionic approach which is controlled by ion diffusion and migration in the electric field. Neutral components recombine only due to diffusion. For ionic components it is necessary to take into account electrostatic interaction and their migration in an external field.
