Ion Specific Electrolyte Effects on Thin Film Drainage in Nonaqueous Solvents Propylene Carbonate and Formamide

Henry, Christine; Karakashev, Stoyan I; Nguyen, Phong T; Nguyen, Anh V; Craig, Vincent


Electrolytes have been found to stabilize thin films in nonaqueous solvents propylene carbonate and formamide, in the absence of surfactant. The thin film balance microinterferometry technique has been used to measure film lifetimes, drainage kinetics, and rupture thicknesses for thin films between air-nonaqueous solution interfaces. Electrolytes that were previously found to inhibit bubble coalescence in bulk bubble column measurements also increase the lifetimes of individual thin films...[Show more]
