Essentially, the size separation of nanoparticles by AF4 is based on the Silica nanoparticle diﬀusivity/size of the objects; however; we found unexpected results when using AF4 for the separation of Size diﬀerent-sized silica nanoparticles. Using pure water as the carrier liquid in the AF4 assessment, silica nano- Sodium dodecyl sulfate particles of 50 and 100 nm were eluted out at almost the same retention time because of the cooperative dif- Debye length fusion derived by larger amounts of particles. After reducing the total concentration of silica particles, since the Zeta potential
