Abstract

We explore the influence of electrolyte concentration on the adsorption of charged spheres using modeling techniques based on random sequential adsorption (RSA). We present a parametric study of the effects of double layer interactions between the charged particles and between the particle and the substrate on the jamming limit using a two-dimensional RSA simulation similar to that of Z. Adamczyk et al. (1990, J. Colloid Interface Sci. 140, 123) along with a simple method of estimating jamming limit coverages. In addition, we present a more realistic RSA algorithm that includes explicit energetic interaction in three dimensions, that is, particle-particle and particle-surface interactions du..
