This study explored the aggregation kinetics of manganese oxides (MnOx) nanoparticles in Al(III) electrolyte solutions. This is a common process in both water treatments and the natural environment. The results show that aggregation kinetics are Al(III) species-dependent. Without natural organic matters (NOM), ferron Ala (monomeric Al(III)) and ferron Alb (polymeric Al(III)) are the main species controlling the Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek (DLVO) type aggregation behavior of MnOx at pH 5.0… Expand

Mn2+ effect on manganese oxides (MnOx) nanoparticles aggregation in solution: Chemical adsorption and cation bridging.
The results show that Mn2+ was highly efficient in destabilizing Mn Ox nanoparticles and behaved as a cation bridge linking both the negatively charged MnOx and humic acid, thereby increasing the stability of the MnOx nanoparticles as a result of the steric repulsion of the adsorbed Humic acid.

Aggregation Kinetics of Manganese Oxides Formed from permanganate activated by (Bi)sulfite: Dual Role of Ca2+ and MnII/III.
This study highlights the dual role, dependent on either presence or absence of SRFA, of Ca2+ and MnII/III in controlling the aggregation of manganese oxides nanoparticles. Expand
Hydrolyzed Al(III) clusters: speciation stability of nano-Al13.
Results showed that concentration and temperature exhibited different roles on the stability of Al13, but at low concentrations, Al13 solution was quite stable at normal temperature, but lost its stability quickly when heating to 90 degrees C. Expand
Aggregation kinetics of manganese dioxide colloids in aqueous solution: influence of humic substances and biomacromolecules.
The steric repulsive forces, originated from organic layers adsorbed on MnO2 colloidal surfaces, may be mainly responsible for their stabilizing effects, however, the complexes formed by alginate and Ca(2+) (>5 mM) might play a bridging role and thus enhanced MnO 2 colloidal aggregation instead.

Formation and stability of NOM-Mn(III) colloids in aquatic environments.
This work characterized the chemical and physical properties of humic acid based (HA)-Mn(III) colloids formed over a range of environmentally relevant conditions and quantified their subsequent aggregation and stability behaviors, showing that molar C/Mn ratios and HA types (Aldrich HA (AHA) and Pahokee peat soil HA (PPSHA)) are critical factors influencing HA-Mn ( III) colloidal properties.

Enhanced aggregation of alginate-coated iron oxide (hematite) nanoparticles in the presence of calcium, strontium, and barium cations.
An aggregation mechanism incorporating the gelation of alginate is proposed to explain the accelerated aggregate growth in the presence of Ca2+, Sr2+, and Ba2+. Expand
