The water-structure-based, quasi-thermodynamic theory published several years ago of hydrophobic interaction forces in symmetric aqueous films [J.C. Eriksson, S. Ljunggren, P.M. Claesson, J. Chem. Sec., Faraday Trans. 2 (85) (1989) 1631 has been generalized to encompass asymmetric films between, e.g. a hydrophobized mica surface and a bare mica surface. The interaction pressures derived on this basis are in good agreement with the experimental data recorded by Claesson et al. [P.M. Claesson, P.C. Herder. C.E. Blom, B.W. Ninham. J. Colloid Interface Sci. 118 (1987) 68]. Hence, additional support is gathered for the original claim that the hydrophobic attraction is related with hydrogen-bond-dependent cluster formation processes in water contacted with a hydrophobic solid Surface.
