triboelectric series

triboelectric series

[¦trī·bō·i¦lek·trik ′sir·ēz]
(electricity)
A list of materials that produce an electrostatic charge when rubbed together, arranged in such an order that a material has a positive charge when rubbed with a material below it in the list, and has a negative charge when rubbed with a material above it in the list.

Tribo-charging occurs when particles are charged with opposite polarity by particle-particle and particle-surface charge mechanisms because of their work function or triboelectric series [23, 31].
The falling position of particles can vary, depending on charging factors such as triboelectric series, mixture ratio, air velocity and relative humidity under a definite gravity force, drag force and electrostatic force [23, 27].
To understand the static charge characteristics of materials, their relative position within the Triboelectric Series must be considered.
