Adsorption of cationic and anionic surfactants on carbonate materials is investigated in this study. Cetylpyridinium chloride (CPC) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) are chosen as typical cationic and anionic surfactants, respectively. It is found that the cationic CPC exhibits negligible adsorption on synthetic calcite in deionized water compared with the adsorption of the anionic SDS. However, a substantial amount of adsorption of CPC is observed on natural carbonates, such as dolomite and… CONTINUE READING
