Foam stability: Part IV.† Kinetics and activation energy of film rupture
High-speed cinematography of collapsing lamellae of an aqueous Tee-pol solution reveals that spontaneous rupture always takes place in the thinnest part of the lamella. The rate of hole expansion isExpand

Foam stability: Part V. Mechanism of film rupture†
Lamellae of pure liquid and low-molecular solutions are unstable because of the absence of a limiting thickness. Rapid collapse of these lamellae may start at relatively large thickness (∼ 500 A)Expand

Foam stability: Part. II. Gas diffusion in foams
Pressure differences between foam bubbles of unequal size are the cause of gas transfer from small to larger bubbles. The rate at which the small bubbles decrease in size is calculated as a functionExpand
