Specific ion effects: why colloid science has failed to contribute to biology

Bostrom, Mathias; Williams, David; Ninham, Barry


Surface tension of salt solutions and double layer forces between charged interfaces show marked specific ion effects not accommodated by the classical double layer theory for charged interfaces. We will demonstrate how this can be partly remedied when the ionic dispersion potential that acts between ion and interface is included on the same level as the electrostatic potential. We will focus on the important influence of these dispersion forces on ionic distributions near air-water and...[Show more]
