Abstract

Molecular dynamic simulations were employed to resolve the forces between two nanoparticles in a Lennard-Jones (L-J) liquid. As such, the relative roles of van der Waals and solvation forces in this system were investigated. Hamaker showed that London-van der Waals forces between two particles of the same material embedded in a fluid were always attractive and this attraction was a major force driving aggregation in colloidal suspensions.
