Hofmeister Effects: Interplay of Hydration, Non-Electrostatic Potentials, and Ion Size

Parsons, Drew; Bostrom, Mathias; Lo Nostro, Pierandrea; Ninham, Barry


The classical Derjaguin-Landau-Verwey-Overbeek (DLVO) theory of colloids, and corresponding theories of electrolytes, are unable to explain ion specific forces between colloidal particles quantitatively. The same is true generally, for surfactant aggregates, lipids, proteins, for zeta and membrane potentials and in adsorption phenomena. Even with fitting parameters the theory is not predictive. The classical theories of interactions begin with continuum solvent electrostatic (double layer)...[Show more]
