Abstract

Colloidal stability and charging behavior of amidine latex particles in the presence of multivalent oligomers of acrylic acid was investigated by electrophoresis and light scattering. The data were interpreted quantitatively with the theory of Derjaguin, Landau, Verwey and Overbeek (DLVO) whereby the surface potentials were estimated from electrophoresis. Monomer leads to slow aggregation at low concentrations and to rapid aggregation at high concentrations, as characteristic for simple salts. The oligomers induce a charge reversal of the particles. Close to the isoelectric point (IEP) aggregation is rapid while the suspension becomes stable away from this point. At high oligomer concentrations, the aggregation becomes rapid again. The agreement between DLVO theory and experiment is good close to the IEP. At higher oligomer concentrations, the theory predicts larger stabilities than observed experimentally. While inter-particle forces seem to be well described by DLVO theory near the IEP, additional attractive non-DLVO forces are becoming relevant at higher concentrations.
