Dependence of colloidal interactions on salt identity, observed frequently in experiments, can be accounted for once ion specific non-electrostatic forces are included in the theory. Ability to predict the effect of added salt on the phase diagram of colloid dispersions is essential for the design of processes involving nanocolloids. The Ornstein-Zernike equation with hypernetted chain closure approximation provides a viable first estimate for the potential of mean force between ionized...[Show more]
