Inhibition of Bubble Coalescence by Electrolytes in Binary Mixtures of Dimethyl Sulfoxide and Propylene Carbonate

Liu, Guangming; Hou, Yi; Zhang, Guangzhao; Craig, Vincent


We have investigated the effect of solvent composition on inhibition of bubble coalescence by electrolytes in binary mixtures of dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and propylene carbonate (PC). Unlike most mixtures, combinations of DMSO and PC exhibit minimal foaming over all compositions (with the strongest effect being at 25% PC by volume); thus, the influence of electrolytes can be investigated. Both LiBr and KSCN at moderate concentrations inhibit bubble coalescence at all solvent compositions....[Show more]
