Adsorption of colloidal particles by Brownian dynamics simulation: Kinetics and surface structures

Jeffrey J Gray, Roger T. Bonnecaze

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The colloidal adsorption process is investigated to model the open simulation boundary. Complete dynamic simulations of adsorption from a bulk medium were performed and surface rearrangement into ordered and disordered microstructures was studied. Kinetics quantified the departure from diffusion limited adsorption due to energetic interactions between particles and the surface.
