In two-phase finite volume systems of electroneutral phospholipids, the electrolyte concentration is different in the two phases. The partitioning is highly anion-specific, a phenomenon not accounted for by classical electrolyte theories. It is explained if ionic dispersion forces that lead to specific ion binding are taken into account. The mechanism provides a contribution to active ion pumps not previously considered.
