The theory presented in [J. Chem. Phys. 104, 669 (1996)] deals with the effect of separated charged impurities on the glass transition temperature Tg. To explain experimental data on the effect of salt on the glass transition temperature, it is necessary to include mechanisms of aggregation and dissociation of salt molecules. Due to aggregation and dissociation, the concentration of charges can be different than the salt concentration. It is pointed out that this might explain the discrepancy between some experimental data and the theory. © 1996 American Institute of Physics.
