Structure and adsorption of a hard-core multi-Yukawa fluid confined in a slitlike pore: grand canonical Monte Carlo simulation and density functional study.

Because of the increasing interest in studying the phenomenon exhibited by charge-stabilized colloidal suspensions in confining geometry, we present a density functional theory (DFT) for a hard-core multi-Yukawa fluid. The excess Helmholtz free-energy functional is constructed by using the modified fundamental measure theory and Rosenfeld's perturbative… (More)
