ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1039/c3sm50906k||Abstract:||Although the stability of the nanobubble remains a controversial issue that is subject to the classical predictions of high Laplace pressure, we demonstrate that a hydrogen nanobubble can be generated and stabilized in an aqueous solution of Keyhole limpet hemocyanin (KLH) protein via an electron radiolysis process. The hydrogen gas inside the nanobubble is in a "dense gas" phase that is characterized by a Knudsen number and number density of hydrogen molecules. The dynamics of nanobubbles are analyzed using time-series electron microscopy images. The growth of small nanobubbles will be affected by the largest neighboring nanobubble; however, a diffusive shielding effect for small nanobubbles is observed. Locally, anti-Ostwald ripening of nanobubbles can be observed; however, the global growth behavior among the nanobubbles is randomly correlated because the characteristic diffusion length of the hydrogen molecules is considerably greater than the average spacing among the nanobubbles. © 2013 The Royal Society of Chemistry.||Source Title:||Soft Matter||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/100516||ISSN:||1744683X||DOI:||10.1039/c3sm50906k|
