Surface potentials of alkali earth nitrates at a mica surface are calculated using a modified Poisson-Boltzmann approach that includes nonelectrostatic ion-surface dispersion interactions. New ab initio dynamic polarizabilities are used to determine dispersion interactions. A hydration model describing the hydration shell of cations is presented. Excellent agreement with experiment is achieved, including charge reversal at high electrolyte concentration without the need for site binding models....[Show more]
