A theoretical and experimental study of an AT-cut quartz crystal resonator as a sensor for viscous conductive liquids has been performed. A novel continuous-flow cell system and an 11 MHz quartz crystal were used for the experiments. Results are presented for aqueous dilute solutions of potassium chloride (KCl) and potassium nitrate (KNO3).
