A New Approach to Desorption of Surface-active Substances at Liquid-phase Boundaries

Abstract

IN order to investigate the kinetics of the formation of adsorption layers at liquid/gas and liquid/liquid boundaries we have made use of the methods of surface tension measurement, including the sessile bubble or drop technique1. Furthermore, an attempt has been made to investigate the possibility of desorption from the adsorption layer by replacement of the surfactant solution around the bubble (drop) by a pure solvent in static conditions (without disruption of the bubble or drop and the adsorption layer).
