Observation of the desorption of mineral nanoparticles from a hybrid Langmuir monolayer: an in situ grazing incidence X-ray (GIXOS) study

Author affiliations

Abstract

The kinetics and mechanism of the desorption of mineral clay particles originally adsorbed to a phospholipid monolayer has been studied. The desorption was induced by the injection of citric acid solution into the aqueous subphase. To follow the related kinetic processes, grazing incidence diffuse X-ray scattering out of the specular plane (GIXOS) was used with a remarkable time resolution of the order of one minute. From the variations of the electron density profile normal to the surface, the Langmuir desorption isotherm and the related kinetic constants were determined.
