Interactions between silica particles in the presence of multivalent coions

Published in Soft Matter. 2017, vol. 13, no. 34, p. 5741-5748
Abstract Forces between charged silica particles in solutions of multivalent coions are measured with colloidal probe technique based on atomic force microscopy. The concentration of 1 : z electrolytes is systematically varied to understand the behavior of electrostatic interactions and double-layer properties in these systems. Although the coions are multivalent the Derjaguin, Landau, Verwey, and Overbeek (DLVO) theory perfectly describes the measured force profiles. The diffuse-layer potentials and regulation properties are extracted from the forces profiles by using the DLVO theory. The dependencies of the diffuse-layer potential and regulation parameter shift to lower concentration with increasing coion valence when plotted as a function of concentration of 1 : z salt. Interestingly, these profiles collapse to a master curve if plotted as a function of monovalent counterion concentration.
