Metallization of alkali anions in condensed phases

Abstract:

The Herzfeld criterion for an insulator-to-metal transition is recast here to predict the critical concentration (n(cr)) for metallization of a solution having a solute more polarizable than the host solvent. The Clausius-Mossotti relation applied to the pure solvent shows that its polarizability and density affect n(cr) only through the pure solvent refractive index or high-frequency dielectric constant. The critical concentration is reduced by solvent polarizability but increased by positiv...
