Effect of polyelectrolytes on (de)stability of liquid foam films

Author affiliations

Abstract

The review addresses the influence of polyelectrolytes on the stabilisation of free-standing liquid foam films, which affects the stability of a whole macroscopic foam. Both the composition of the film surface and the stratification of the film bulk drives the drainage and the interfacial forces within a foam film. Beside synthetic polyelectrolytes also natural polyelectrolytes like cellulose, proteins and DNA are considered.
