Partition coefficient monovalent trace ions between liquids and either solid NaNO2 or KCl were determined. The isotropic elastic model of ionic crystals was used for calculating the energy change caused by the ionic substitutions. The observed values of partition coefficients in KCl good agreement with calculate values.
