(1) The adsorption of dodecylammonium acetate (DAA) on CAB-O-SIL has been investigated, the adsorption isotherm of DAA shows two plateaus (i.e. LS-type). (2) The addition of sodium chloridc increases the adsorption of DAA, but no significant change can be found in the first plateau at low concentrations; while the addition of hydrochloric acid decreases the adsorption of DAA in the experimental concentration region. (3) The stability of CAB-O-SIL suspension has been determined for the corresponding solutions. (4)Based on the two-step model of the surfactant adsorption theory proposed previously, and with the aid of conductivity measurements, the coagulation regularity of CAB-O-SIL suspension can be explained satisfactorily.
