For registration please go to Upcoming courses.

Course: DLVO theory and introduction

Topics that will be discussed are:

• Surface energy

• Adhesion thermodynamics


This lecture will provide basic understanding

of quantification of surface hydrophobicity

in terms of surface free energy and surface

charge in terms of zeta-potentials.

Furthermore, prediction of adhesion between two

surfaces will be explained using both the thermodynamics and the DLVO theory.
