Previous papers by these authors on slurry rheology control grinding aids have emphasized the end-use results and application methodology involved. This paper emphasizes the chemical principles and the influence of various chemical structures behind slurry rheology control chemicals. Particular examples are shown which correlate chemical structure modifications to environmental factors involved in grinding such as pH, shear, ore type, water chemistry, and particle size.
