Assessing short-range membrane – colloid interactions using surface energetics

  title={Assessing short-range membrane – colloid interactions using surface energetics},
  author={Jonathan A. Brant and Amy E. Childress},
The contribution of acid–base (AB) (polar) interactions to the total interaction energy between membranes and colloids was investigated. The surface energetics of several membranes and colloids were evaluated using the Lifshitz–van der Waals acid-base approach. This provides the van der Waals (LW) and polar interaction energies between various surfaces from measurements of contact angles of different probe liquids on these surfaces. In addition, the surface potentials of the membranes and… CONTINUE READING
