Direct measurement of hydrophobic forces: a study of dissolved gas, approach rate and neutron irradiation

Craig, Vincent; Ninham, Barry; Pashley, Richard


Theoretical interpretations of the, as yet, poorly understood long-range hydrophobic attraction are briefly reviewed. We report long-range hydrophobic attractive forces between silica surfaces made hydrophobic by adsorption of the cationic surfactants cetyltrimethylammonium bromide and cetylpyridmium chloride onto silica surfaces. The effects of dissolved gas, surface approach velocity, and neutron irradiation on the measured interaction have been studied in order to investigate possible...[Show more]
