Influence of Ionic Strength on Hydrophobic Interactions in Water: Dependence on Solute Size and ShapeAuthor(s): Elyna Marlin
The phenomena of hydrophobicity is crucial to biology, chemistry, and biochemistry. It is described as the interaction of low solubility nonpolar molecules or groups with water. Numerous water-related processes, such as complexation, surfactant aggregation, and coagulation, are impacted by hydrophobic interactions. These interactions are crucial for the development and maintenance of proteins or biological membranes. Biology, chemistry, and biochemistry all place a high value on hydrophobicity. It is described as having a poor affinity for water or even as some molecules or compounds avoiding it. There are several processes in an aqueous solution that include hydrophobic contacts, including complexation, surfactant aggregation, and coagulation. Hydrophobic interactions are defined as watermediated interactions of hydrophobic particles in an aqueous environment.
