In poetry:

Half of the fellow father as he doubles
His sea-sucked Adam in the hollow hulk,
Half of the fellow mother as she dabbles
To-morrow's diver in her horny milk,
Bisected shadows on the thunder's bone
Bolt for the salt unborn.

In science:

The former leads to the prediction of “ac capacitive desalination”, since there is a time-averaged transfer of salt from the bulk to the double layers, via oscillating diffusion layers.
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
In the simplest one-dimensional problem with parallel-plate, blocking electrodes, over-charging of the double-layer “capacitors” leads to net adsorption of neutral salt from the bulk, regardless of the polarity of the diffuse-layer voltage .
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
In electrolytes, for the same reason, steric constraints also greatly reduce salt adsorption and surface conduction compared to PB theory by limiting the charge density of the double layer [53, 56].
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
At large voltage, local salt depletion in the diffusion layer can cause the double layer to change to a non-equilibrium structure, with an extended “space-charge” layer that is completely depleted of coions.
Strongly nonlinear dynamics of electrolytes in large ac voltages
Matching to the bulk solution requires lim ˆy→∞ ˆc ∼ limy→0 ¯c = ¯co , whereas the boundary condition at the inner edge of the diffusion layer is determined by matching with the salt flux out of the double layer, cf.
