In this paper, the surface element integration (SEI) method was used derive analytical force/potential versus distance profiles for two non-DLVO forces: Lewis acid-base and solvation forces. These forces are highly relevant in a variety of systems, from bacterial adhesion, nanoparticle suspension stability to atomic force microscopy (AFM) profiles. The SEI-derived expressions were compared with the more commonly utilized Derjaguin approximations in order to assess the effect of curvature on the… CONTINUE READING
