DLVO Theory - History
... of linearized Debye-Hückel theory subsequently was applied to colloidal dispersions by Levine and Dube who found that charged colloidal particles should experience a strong medium-range repulsion and a ... This theory did not explain the observed instability of colloidal dispersions against irreversible aggregation in solutions of high ionic strength. 1941, Derjaguin and Landau introduced a theory for the stability of colloidal dispersions that invoked a fundamental instability driven by strong but short-ranged van der Waals attractions countered by the ...
