Abstract
Capacitive deionization (CDI) is an emerging desalination technique by utilizing the electrosorption of porous electrodes. Thus far, only linear concentration profiles in bulk electrolyte between the electrodes have been observed, during ion charging (ion depletion) or ion discharging (ion enrichment). This so-called linear ion concentration polarization (ICP) can be predicted by the simple convective-diffusion model. In this study, we demonstrate that capacitive charging can induce nonlinear concentration profiles in the electrolyte. To visualize nonlinear ICP dynamics, a miniaturized CDI platform is developed to observe in situ ion concentration profiles. Determined by the ion flux mismatching of electrosorption and bulk ion transport, we discovered four ICP regimes in CDI steady, linear ICP, delayed-nonlinear ICP, and nonlinear ICP. We directly observed the signatures of nonlinear ICP: i) flat depletion zone with extremely low ion concentration, and ii) corresponding exponential current drop. Based on this observation, two scaling models are formulated to predict i) when the nonlinear ICP occurs, and ii) the propagation speed of the flat depletion zone. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first microscopic characterization of ICP in CDI systems, and it firmly establishes the existence of nonlinear ion transport dynamics in CDI's bulk electrolyte.
