  • We simulate cluster formation of model colloidal particles interacting via DLVO (Derjaguin, Landau, Vervey, Overbeek) potentials. The interaction potentials can be related to experimental conditions, defined by the pH-value, the salt concentration and the volume fraction of solid particles suspended in water. The system shows different structural properties for different conditions, including cluster formation, a glass-like repulsive structure, or a liquid suspension. Typically, many… CONTINUE READING
