Adsorption of acid and polymer coated nanoparticles: a statistical thermodynamics approach.


A molecular theoretical description is developed to describe the adsorption of nanoparticles (NPs) that are coated with polymers and functionalized with (surface) acid groups. Results are presented for the adsorption onto both negatively and positively charged surfaces as a function of pH and salt concentration, polymer coating, and NP size. An important… (More)
