Abstract

We present an extension to the Poisson-Boltzmann model where the dipolar features of solvent molecules are taken explicitly into account. The formulation is derived at mean-field level and can be extended to any order in a systematic expansion. It is applied to a two-plate system with oppositely charged surfaces. The ion distribution and profiles in the dipolar order parameter are calculated and can result in a large correction to the interplate pressure.
