Dielectric measurements were carried out on the systems composed of nanofiltration membrane and dilute solutions of eight electrolytes over the frequency range from 40Hz to 10MHz. Two relaxations were observed for each system. Three-phase dielectric model, which consist of  the supporting layer and separation layer of membrane and solution phase, was established. The the electrical parameters of each layer were obtained through strict mathematical calculation. This paper focused on low-frequency relaxation about 103Hz caused by interfacial polarization between the two layers. The variation of electrical parameters of the two layers with concentration and species of the electrolyte was discussed in detail. Further, dielectric properties of each layer were obtained and the distribution information of different electrolyte in supporting layer and separation layer of membrane were given.
