Kinetics of Surfactant Adsorption at Fluid-Fluid Interfaces

  title={Kinetics of Surfactant Adsorption at Fluid-Fluid Interfaces},
  author={Haim Diamant and David Andelman},
We present a theory for the kinetics of surfactant adsorption at the interface between an aqueous solution and another fluid (air, oil) phase. The model relies on a free-energy formulation. It describes both the diffusive transport of surfactant molecules from the bulk solution to the interface and the kinetics taking place at the interface itself. When applied to nonionic surfactant systems, the theory recovers results of previous models and justifies their assumptions. Common nonionic… CONTINUE READING
