The contribution λion of interionic forces to the thermal conductivity of dilute electrolyte solutions is calculated on the basis of a model previously proposed and is found to vary as k3 or (concentration)3/2 according to the expression , where k is the inverse Debye length, e is the electronic charge, ε is dielectric constant of solvent, z is charge number, cβ is concentration of dissolved ion β in units of number of ions per cubic centimeter, and Dβ is the self‐diffusion coefficient of the ion.
