Clay Swelling and Colloid Stability by Martin V. Smalley

By Martin V. Smalley

In a unprecedented, over-the-shoulder viewpoint of a number one scientist’s personal breakthroughs, Clay Swelling and Colloid Stability places emphasis on major paradigm shifts in colloid technological know-how that designate particle interactions for charged plates, stacks, suspensions, and pastes in addition to round colloids.

Martin Smalley first discusses the alternative of the DLVO concept with the Coulombic charm conception to give an explanation for the lifestyles, quantity, and houses of the two-phase area of colloid balance. utilizing the n-butylammonium vermiculite procedure as his version clay procedure, the writer clarifies the issues of traditional theories and provides the experimental info that shape the root of his new theories. He offers rigorous derivations that position the hot electric concept for charged colloids on an organization starting place in statistical mechanics. the writer illustrates why a brand new, quantitative bridging flocculation version for polymer-stabilized colloids needs to change the depletion flocculation version. Smalley additionally examines the invention of the "dressed macroion" constitution of clay plates in answer, the constitution of a bridging polymer, and the distribution of polymer segments, counterions, and water molecules within the interlayer zone.

Based at the author’s personal study and 36 courses within the box, Clay Swelling and Colloid balance isa self-contained and intellectually pleasurable account of the innovative strategy resulting in a universally sound, and more and more appropriate, concept of colloid stability.
