Self-assembly of nanoparticles at interfaces during adsorption and evapoartion, and their effect on surface tension and interfacial tension.
The representative snapshots of simulations for 5.21 volume percentage of nanoparticles and 112.5 Å2 interfacial area per C12E3 molecule in the C16–water system at a different amount of surfactant adsorbed (a) 0%, (b) 50%, (c) 75%, and (d) 100% on NPs. The top row shows the side view of the system displaying only one interface and the bottom row shows the top view of the system. In the snapshot, red, green, purple, yellow, and blue represent NPs, hydrophilic part of surfactant and hydrophobic part of surfactant, C16, and water, respectively.
These include only those published in our lab.
