The surface properties of a nonionic photoresponsive surfactant that incorporates the light-sensitive azobenzene group into its tail have been investigated. Cis-trans photoisomerization of this azobenzene group alters the ability of the surfactant to pack into adsorbed monolayers at an air/water interface or into aggregates in solution, thereby causing a(More)
The response of a nonionic photoresponsive surfactant system to changes in temperature is reported. This surfactant contains the light-sensitive azobenzene group, and when exposed to light, a solution of this surfactant contains a mixture of the cis and trans photoisomers of this group. The temperature of the surfactant solution has a strong impact on the(More)
