At high particle concentration, the presence of the super-crowding effect, strong non-ideality in addition to significant light absorption and scattering makes particle analysis very difficult. Here we report quantitative molecular, microscopic and macroscopic experimental results on like-charged colloids with concentration up to 60 vol%, close to the densest possible packing of spheres. It is achieved by conducting sedimentation–diffusion-equilibrium analytical ultracentrifugation (SE-AUC) on a concentrated dispersion of colloidal silica nanoparticles in a refractive-index-matching solvent. Surprisingly, we observed the self-association and even colloidal gel formation of like-charged colloids at very high concentration. Further experiments indicate that the attraction force may be counter-ion mediated. These results represent an important step forward in understanding complicated interparticle interaction in extremely high concentration, which is vital for the controlled fabrication of colloidal superstructures.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>de With, Gijsbertus</dc:contributor> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-02-16T07:54:23Z</dcterms:available> <dcterms:title>Self-association and gel formation during sedimentation of like-charged colloids</dcterms:title> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/29"/> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
