The rates of a number of liquid-phase reactions have been measured at pressures up to 15,000 atm. Those reactions in which ions were formed were strikingly accelerated by pressure, while a reaction in which ions were removed was retarded. These results support an earlier suggestion that the most important effect of pressure on ionic reactions is to increase the solvation free energy of the ionic charges.
