Simple ions in electrolytes exhibit different degrees of affinity for the approach to the free surface of water. This results in strong ion-specific effects that are particularly dramatic in the selective inhibition of bubble coalescence. I present here the calculation of electrostatic interaction between free surfaces of electrolytes caused by the ion accumulation or depletion near a surface. When both anion and cation are attracted to the surface (like H+ and Cl- in HCl solutions), van der...[Show more]
