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 studied the behavior of binary surfactant mixtures using the Monte Carlo (MC) simulation technique with a three-dimensional lattice model of a binary surfactant mixture, in which the constituent surfactant species are represented by a series of connected grid sites. Head-head interactions, alone and along with tail-tail interactions, among identical(More)
Pulsed field gradient NMR spectroscopy was used to determine the partitioning of surfactant between monomeric and micellar forms in a mixed CTAB (hexadecyltetramethylammonium bromide) and Triton X-100 [p-(1,1,3-tetramethylbutyl)polyoxyethylene] system. In addition, potentiometric and surface tension measurements were used to determine the free concentration(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)
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)
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)
The adsorption behavior at the liquid-air interface and aggregation characteristics were investigated in Gemini surfactants in aqueous media containing different concentrations of conventional ionic surfactants by surface tension and conductometry measurements. Also, the effects of anionic conventional surfactants (ACS) were studied on the size and(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)
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 insolubility of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in aqueous media has been a limitation for the practical application of this unique material. Recent studies have demonstrated that the suspend ability of CNT can be substantially improved by employing appropriate surfactants. Although various surfactants have been tested, the exact mechanism by which carbon(More)
