Mixtures of alkyltrimethylammonium bromide (CnTAB, n=12, 14, 16, 18) and Triton X-100 were studied at a range of mole fractions of ionic surfactant per nonionic surfactant. For each mixture, the cmc obtained from surface tension measurements differed from that obtained using potentiometry. The behavior of these mixed-surfactant systems showed three(More)
In the present work, the adsorption behavior at the liquid-air interface and micellization characteristics of mixtures of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and p-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl) polyoxyethylene (TritonX-100) in aqueous media containing different concentrations of NaBr were investigated by surface tension and potentiometry measurements. From(More)
The properties of anionic-rich and cationic-rich mixtures of CTAB (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide) and SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate) were investigated with conductometry and surface tension measurements and by determining the surfactant NMR self-diffusion coefficients. The critical aggregate concentration (CAC), surface tension reduction(More)
We have investigated micellization in systems containing two surfactant molecules with the same structure using a lattice Monte Carlo simulation method. For the binary systems containing two surfactants, we have varied the head-head interactions or tail-tail repulsions in order to mimic the nonideal behavior of mixed surfactant systems and to manipulate the(More)
The adsorption of halide anions in the absence, and presence, of a perpendicularly external electric field on the C54H18 graphene surface has been investigated using M06-2X/6-31G(d,p) density functional theory (DFT). The structural characteristics, charge transfer, electric surface potential (ESP) maps, equilibrium distances between ions and the graphene(More)
The ability of cationic-rich and anionic-rich mixtures of CTAB (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide) and SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate) for dispersing of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in aqueous media has been studied through both the experimental and molecular dynamics simulation methods. Compared to the pure CTAB and SDS, these mixtures are more effective with the(More)
The effect of salt concentration on intermicellar interactions and aggregate structures of anionic and cationic-rich mixtures of CTAB (cetyltrimethylammonium bromide) and SDS (sodium dodecyl sulfate) were investigated with conductometry, surface tension, zeta potential, cyclic voltammetry measurements and by determining the surfactant NMR self-diffusion(More)
The phase behavior and aggregate structures of mixtures of the oppositely charged surfactants cetyltrimethyl ammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) are explored at high dilution by pulsed field gradient stimulated echo (PFG-STE) NMR. The aggregation numbers and hydrodynamic radii of vesicles and mixed micelles were determined by a(More)
DFT computations were carried out to characterize the (17)Oand (2)H electric field gradient, EFG, in various bisphosphonate derivatives. The computations were performed at the B3LYP level with 6-311++G (d,P) standard basis set. Calculated EFG tensors were used to determine the (17)O and (2)H nuclear quadrupole coupling constant, χ and asymmetry parameter,(More)
In this paper interaction of DNA with cationic bolaform surfactants is investigated. The structural formula for synthesized bolaforms is as follows: bolaform B1 with structural formula Br(-)(CH3)3N(+)(CH2)3N(+)(CH3)Br(-) and bolaform B2 with structural formula of Br(-)(CH3)3N(+)(CH2)12N(+)(CH3)Br(-). There are stronger electrostatic interactions in bolaform(More)
