Three different ceramic powders, viz. alumina, zirconia and silicon nitride were dispersed using two polyelectrolytes, one cationic (Betz 1190) and the other anionic (Darvan-C). All powders examined during the study could be well dispersed only under conditions of polymer dosage and pH such that the working pH is at least 2 pH units away from the pHIEP of the powder-dispersant combination. The shift in the isoelectric point (IEP) of the powders were determined through electro-acoustic measurements on 1% volume suspensions. Specific free energy of interaction were also computed using a model based on the electrical double layer theory of surfactant absorption.
