Ionization of Surface Groups

  • Dissociation of any acidic groups on a particle surface will give a negatively charged surface
  • Dissociation of any basic groups on a particle surface will give a positively charged surface
  • The magnitude of the surface charge depends on the acidic or basic strengths of the surface groups and on the pH of the solution¬†
