Electroadsorption of Colloids on Electrodes

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

3 Scopus citations


The electrically induced adsorption of suspended colloidal particles on charged electrodes is studied by the HHF-Hamaker theory. Surface potentials are calculated by the Gouy-Chapman model for a diffuse double layer. Particle-particle and particle-surface interaction energies are compared for several cases of surface-to-particle charge density ratios. It is shown that electroadsorption of colloidal particles is hindered when their surface charge density is larger then that of the electrode.
