Abstract

The effective Hamiltonian of electrolyte solution near its critical point is constructed. The vapor-liquid critical point is investigated in detail. The strong dependence of the Landau-Ginsburg number on the concentration of electrolyte is demonstrated. It is shown that the charge fluctuations in electrolytes essentially suppress the fluctuation of the order parameter and broaden the region of classical behavior.
