Charged Interfaces in Polar & Non-Polar Media & the Concept of the Zeta Potential

What is the zeta potential (ZP) and why measure it? In order to address these questions, we must first briefly discuss the two fundamental parameters that control the nature and behavior of every system in which one phase is dispersed in another phase; the phases are distinguished by the terms disperse phase (for the phase forming the particles) and the dispersion medium (for the fluid in which the particles are distributed). The two fundamental parameters are the extent of the interface of the disperse phase and the interfacial chemistry of the disperse phase, respectively.
