Widely used as an indicator of the stability of particle suspensions and colloidal samples, surface zeta potential is traditionally measured using the specialist technique of streaming potential.
The situation can be reversed and the solution can be forced to flow through a plug of packed particles (Adamson and Gast, 1997; Masliyah and Bhattacharjee, 2006); the zeta potential of the particles is calculated from the streaming potential measured by this technique.
A significant limitation of electrophoretic mobility and streaming potential measurements, both classified under electroosmosis techniques, is that only an average value of the zeta potential/streaming potential is detected--regardless of whether the surface charge distribution is homogeneous or otherwise.
In addition, papermakers have generally learned that charge demand titrations provide a better basis for process control, compared to zeta potential (EM) or streaming potential (SP) measurements.
The streaming potential method was used, as it has been shown to be the most appropriate electrokinetic technique to study electrokinetic properties i.
