Maxwell's displacement current flowing through a metal electrode/air gap/Langmuir monolayer was detected. MDC experimental results obtained during a step compression mode are presented and contrasted with the Debye-Brown rotational model. As an alternative approach a theoretical model based on an analogy with a nonideal gas of polar molecules is derived from Lagrange's equation of motion.
