Novel applications of non Hofmeister ion specificity in bubble interactions

Xue, Xinkai; Pashley, Richard M.; Ninham, Barry W.


The ion specificity of bubble-bubble interactions in water remains unexplained. Whatever their valence all ion pairs either completely inhibit bubble coalescence or have no effect whatever. The phenomenon appears unrelated to Hofmeister specificity. Salts which inhibit coalescence enable the formation of a high density bubble column evaporator (BCE). If hot gas bubbles are injected into the bubble column evaporator at a significantly higher temperature than the water, the hot bubble...[Show more]
