Do hydration forces play a role in thin film drainage and rupture observed in electrolyte solutions?

Craig, Vincent


The mechanism that controls bubble coalescence in electrolyte solutions remains unresolved. The problem is difficult as sensitive dynamic thin film processes are critical. Here we discuss the relationship between film dynamics, specific-ion effects and the combining rules that codify electrolyte effects on bubble coalescence. The relationship with Hofmeister effects is explored, revealing that these very different manifestations of specific ion effects ultimately have the same origin, being the...[Show more]
