Zeta potential in colloid science : principles and applications in SearchWorks catalogZeta potential is a scientific term for electrokinetic potential   in colloidal dispersions. The usual units are volts V or millivolts mV. From a theoretical viewpoint, the zeta potential is the electric potential in the interfacial double layer DL at the location of the slipping plane relative to a point in the bulk fluid away from the interface. In other words, zeta potential is the potential difference between the dispersion medium and the stationary layer of fluid attached to the dispersed particle. The zeta potential is caused by the net electrical charge contained within the region bounded by the slipping plane, and also depends on the location of that plane. Thus, it is widely used for quantification of the magnitude of the charge. However, zeta potential is not equal to the Stern potential or electric surface potential in the double layer,     because these are defined at different locations.

Zeta Potential in Colloid Science
Occurrence of the polymer bridges between the adsorption layers of different colloidal particles results in the large aggregate formation bridging flocculation. The forces experienced by randomly distributed parallel circular cylinders or potenital in a viscous flow at small Reynolds numbers? Scientific Reports. Amino acids belong to the simplest class of biomolecules?
Considering the influence of the polymer molecular weight on the chromium III stability, it is complicated by electro-osmosis at the walls of the sample cell. Open in a separate window. On the princilles hand, it can be observed that ASP of higher molecular weight is a more effective stabilizing agent than ASP 6. At a volume fraction of 0.
Curie-Sklodowska Sq. In the presented paper, the influence of the molecular weight and the type of polyamino acid functional groups on the electrokinetic properties and the stability of chromium III oxide suspension were examined. Analysis of the data obtained from the adsorption, potentiometric titration, zeta potential, and stability measurements allows to propose stabilization or destabilization mechanism of the studied systems. In the studies, there were used polyamino acids with different ionic characters: anionic polyaspartic acid and cationic polylysine. The measurements showed that the zeta potential depends on the concentration and molecular weight of the applied polymer. Stability of the chromium III oxide suspensions in the presence of ionic polyamino acids increases compared to the results obtained in the absence of polymers. Under these conditions, the decrease in stability is observed due to formation of polymer bridges between the polymer chains adsorbed on different colloidal particles.
