Adsorption-desorption kinetics of surfactants at liquid surfaces.


The paper discusses adsorption and desorption energy barriers for macroscopic interfaces of surfactant solutions. Literature data suggest that adsorption and desorption are not always fully diffusion controlled. Apart from electrostatic barriers that lead to strong deviations, other types of barriers are less easy to identify, because smaller deviations… (More)
