Title: The balance of electric field and interfacial catalysis in promoting water dissociation in bipolar membranes

Bipolar membranes maintain a steady pH in electrolytic cells through water autodissociation at the interface between their cation- and anion-exchange layers. We analyze the balance of electric field and catalysis in accelerating this reaction.
