Abstract

Abstract The surface forces in thin liquid films of the n-alkanes from pentane to octane inclusive on quartz were investigated by ellipsometric measurement of the equilibrium film thicknesses of these liquids adsorbed from undersaturated vapor onto a smooth quartz substrate. The experimental adsorption isotherms were found to be in excellent agreement with the macroscopic van der Waals interactions as predicted by the Lifshitz theory.
