A modified Poisson-Boltzmann analysis is made of the double layer interaction between two silica surfaces and two alumina surfaces in chloride electrolyte. The analysis incorporates nonelectrostatic ion-surface dispersion interactions based on ab initio ionic excess polarizabilities with finite ion sizes. A hydration model for the tightly held hydration shell of kosmotropic ions is introduced. A direct Hofmeister series (K > Na > Li) is found at the silica surface while the reversed series (Li...[Show more]
