Ion-specific Influence of Electrolytes on Bubble Coalescence in Nonaqueaous Solvents

Henry, Christine; Craig, Vincent


We report the effects of electrolytes on bubble coalescence in nonaqueous solvents methanol, formamide, propylene carbonate, and dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO). Results in these solvents are compared to the ion-specific bubble coalescence inhibition observed in aqueous electrolyte solutions, which is predicted by simple, empirical ion combining rules. Coalescence inhibition by electrolytes is observed in all solvents, at a lower concentration range (0.01 M to 0.1M) to that observed in water....[Show more]
