Various models are considered for the electrolytic dissociation of inorganic substances dissolved in water. The electrostatic model incorporating compound-particle stoichiometry is found to be the best. The observed pK values have been processed for the dissociation of sulphates, nitrates, carbonates, fluorides, bromides and hydroxides to determine the optimal effective central ion-ligand distances, which are generally close to the sums of the crystallochemical radii.-C.N.
