Ion Specific Surface Charge Density of SBA-15 Mesoporous Silica

Salis, Andrea; Parsons, Drew; Bostrom, Mathias Anders; Medda, Luca; Barse, Brajesh; Ninham, Barry; Monduzzi, Maura


Potentiometric titrations were used to estimate the surface charge density of SBA-15 mesoporous silica in different salt solutions. It was found that surface charge depends both on cation type, following a Hofmeister series (Cs+ <Guanidinium+<K+<Na +<Li+), and on salt concentration (in the range 0.05-1 M). The surface charge series is reproduced by theoretical calculations performed using a modified Poisson-Boltzmann equation that includes ionic dispersion forces with ab initio ion...[Show more]
