The inverse Schulze-Hardy rule was recently proposed based on experimental observations. This rule describes an interesting situation of the aggregation of charged colloidal particles in the presence of the multivalent coions. Specifically, it can be shown that the critical coagulation concentration is inversely proportional to the coion valence. Here the derivation of the inverse Schulze-Hardy rule based on purely theoretical grounds is presented. This derivation complements the classical Schulze-Hardy rule, which describes the multivalent counterion systems.
