Research

Professor Prieve's research interests focus on the nature and measurement of colloidal forces and their effect on transport of colloidal particles, especially electrokinetic phenomena and chemically-driven flows. Applications include product formulation and solid-liquid separations.

Charge Effects in Nonpolar Fluids

Surfactants are sometimes added to highly nonpolar fluids like alkanes to increase conductivity and suppress explosions caused by a large streaming potential developed during flow of these fluids.  These surfactants can also induce a surface charge on interfaces which can suppress Brownian aggregation of particle suspensions or emulsions.  This induced charge on pigment particles is also used in electrophoretic display technology.  Professor Prieve is using impedance spectroscopy to deduce the size, charge and concentration of charge carriers in the fluid as well as the mechanism for forming surface charge. 

Total Internal Reflection Microscopy

Professor Prieve developed a new experimental technique called Total Internal Reflection Microscopy (TIRM). TIRM can monitor the separation distance between a single microscopic sphere (2 to 20 microns in diameter) immersed in an aqueous solution and a glass microscope slide as the sphere undergoes Brownian motion and interacts with the slide. When illuminated by an evanescent wave, the amount of light scattered by the sphere is exquisitely sensitive to the distance between the sphere and the plate. This allows detection of changes in distance as small as a large molecule (one nanometer).

2-D assembly of colloidal particles on a/c electrodes

 D/C current normal to a planar electrode causes particles next to the electrode to aggregate as a result electroosmotic flow around the particles; reversing the polarity of the d/c field causes disaggregation. A/C current normal to the electrode can also cause aggregation if the frequency, amplitude and electrolyte are correctly chosen.  Aggregation is one step in producing multilayered nanodeposits for photonic devices. Paul Sides and Professor Prieve used TIRM to observe the motion of single particles normal to an electrode under the same conditions in which ensembles  aggregate by tangential motion.  They established that a necessary condition for aggregation in a/c fields is that the phase angle between oscillations normal to the electrode and oscillations in the electric field must be greater than 90 degrees. 

Measurement of Colloidal Forces

 From a histogram of separation distances sampled by TIRM, the potential energy of the interaction between the sphere and the plate can be determined as a function of distance. Changes in potential energy can be detected which are a fraction of the thermal energy of single molecules. Because of its unique sensitivity, TIRM can be used to probe much weaker interactions than other techniques. Thus were measured the net bouyant weight of single particles (as small as 0.1 pN), double-layer (electrostatic) repulsion, retarded van der Waals attraction, depletion attraction (arises from nonadsorbing polymer), steric repulsion (arises from adsorbed polymer), the optical force exerted by a focussed laser, and unexpectedly long-range attraction between receptor-ligand pairs.

Measuring Charge on Flat Plate

 In water, a charged particle attracts ions of opposite charge, which accumulate near the particle to form a diffuse cloud.  The charge on microscopic particles is usually determined by measuring their terminal velocity in an electric field.  Determining the charge on a flat surface is more difficult.  By rotating a circular disk about its axis, shearing of the ion cloud on the disk surface generates a radial streaming current.  Conservation of charge induces a streaming potential profile in the bulk solution which can be measured and used to deduce the surface charge density.

Highlights

  • Continued as Editor of Colloids and Surfaces A, responsible for evaluating 400 manuscripts in 2013.
  • As the President of the International Association of Colloid & Interface Scientists (IACIS), presided at the triannual conference held May 13-18, 2012 in Sendai, Japan.  The conference had over 1000 registered participants from 34 countries.  As the first major event held in Sendai after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami (which devestated the coastal region of the city), the opening ceremony of the conference was attended by the Emperor and Empress as well as the Japanese Minister of Science and Technology.  Our next meeting will be in.Mainz, Germany in 2015.
