Electro-Optic Studies of Colloids and their Stability

  • S. P. Stoylov


On the basis of the general ideas of Lebedev for intermolecular forces, and the general theory of Lifshitz for electrodynamic interactions and its recent modifications and extensions on the one side, and the experiments and theories of the interfacial electric polarizability of O’Konski, Schwarz, Stoylov, Jennings, Shurr, Takashima, Dukhin, Shilov and Oosawa on the other, a connection is revealed between electro-optically and dielectrically measured high values of the electric polarizability of some colloid particles and polymer molecules and the stability of their aqueous solutions or suspensions. Conditions are suggested where this connection is believed to be the most pronounced. These are supported by the theoretical expectations and the experimental results of other authors.
