Cleaning of Protein-Coated Surfaces Using Nanobubbles: An Investigation Using a Quartz Crystal Microbalance

Liu, Guangming; Wu, Zhijun; Craig, Vincent


The use of nanobubbles as cleaning agents to remove bovine serum albumin from the solid-liquid interface has been investigated using a Quartz Crystal Microbalance to both qualitatively follow the production of nanobubbles and to quantify the adsorption to and removal of protein using nanobubbles from both hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces. The protein is completely removed from both hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces using electrochemically produced nanobubbles after two and four cycles,...[Show more]
