What does a Zeta potential actually mean?

Netherlands / Нидерланды

A discussion will be given on the interpretation of electrokinetic potentials. The emphasis is on understanding this central quantity that plays such an important role in the science of charged colloidal systems. General trends will be reviewed and a molecular interpretation for the slip process is proposed, invoking molecular dynamics and surface conductivity measurements as additional sources of information.
