- Particle vs. particle competition: using solvent relaxation nuclear magnetic resonance to examine preferential adsorption of polymer in systems containing a mix of colloidal particles. CL Cooper, M Murray, T Cosgrove, JS van Duijneveldt and SW Prescott. International Association of Colloids and Interface Scientists Conference, Sendai, Japan, May 2012.
Industrial formulations frequently contain a blend of particles where the surface properties may vary widely. Stabilising such systems can be difficult if the polymer can move from being adsorbed on one particle to another. The behaviour of multiple polymers in competition for colloidal particles has been widely investigated; here, we consider the alternative situation of multiple surfaces in competition for a single polymer. The use of solvent relaxation nuclear magnetic resonance will be discussed in relation to a range of systems containing different particles and polymers.
