Thermokinetic Propertices of CTAB on Quartz Surface and its Effects on Surface
In this study, the adsorption mechanism of cethyltrimethylammounium bromide (CTAB) onto quartz surface from aqueous solution was investigated and also some thermokinetic parameters such as isosteric adsorption enthalpy and entropy for this system were determined through thermogenesis curves determination by microcalorimetry. In addition, the contribution of adsorption to the surface wettability is illustrated according to the experimental results of surface electrical behavior and wetting behavior. This study shows that the wetting behavior of CTAB on quartz surface is determined by the process of its adsorption.
