The Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek (DLVO) interaction forces between a chemically heterogeneous substrate and a spherical particle approaching the surface are calculated using a simple model. This model decomposes the heterogeneous substrate into nanoscale subunits and applies a pairwise summation of forces between each subunit and the approaching… CONTINUE READING
