Advancing contact angle (theta) measurements were carried out for aqueous solutions of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and cetylpyridinium bromide (CPyB) mixtures on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA). The obtained results indicate that the wettability of PTFE and PMMA by aqueous solutions of CTAB and CPyB mixtures(More)
The wettability of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) by aqueous solutions of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) mixtures with short-chain alcohols such as methanol, ethanol, and propanol, as well as for 1-hexadecylpyridinium bromide (CPyB) with the same alcohols, was studied on the basis of advancing contact-angle(More)
Measurements of contact angles (theta) of aqueous solutions of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and propanol mixtures at constant CTAB concentration equal to 1x10(-5), 1x10(-4), 6x10(-4) and 1x10(-3) M on polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) were carried out. The obtained results indicate that the wettability of PTFE by aqueous solutions of these mixtures(More)
MEASUREMENTS of the surface tension, density, viscosity and conductivity of aqueous solutions of rhamnolipid at natural and controlled pH were made at 293 K. On the basis of the obtained results the critical micelle concentration of rhamnolipid and its Gibbs surface excess concentration at the water-air interface were determined. The maximal surface excess(More)
The behavior of mixed nonionic/nonionic surfactant solutions, that is, p-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenoxy poly(ethylene glycol)s Triton X-100 (TX100) and Triton X-165 (TX165) have been studied by surface tension and density measurements. The obtained results of the surface tension measurements were compared with those calculated from the relations derived(More)
Measurements of the advancing contact angle (theta) were carried out for aqueous solution of p-(1,1,3,3-tetramethylbutyl)phenoxypoly(ethylene glycol), Triton X-100 (TX100), and Triton X-165 (TX165) mixtures on glass. The obtained results indicate that the wettability of glass depends on the concentration and composition of the surfactant mixture. The(More)
The thermodynamics of micellization of mixed anionic/anionic surfactant solutions, that is, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDDS) and sodium decyl sulfate (SDS), have been studied by surface tension, density, and conductivity measurements. The obtained results indicate that the values of critical micelle concentration strongly depend on the composition of the(More)
The measurements of the advancing contact angle for water, glycerol, diiodomethane and aqueous solutions of Triton X-100 (TX-100), Triton X-165 (TX-165), sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDDS), sodium hexadecyl sulfonate (SHDS), cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and cetylpyridinium bromide (CPyB) on quartz surface were carried out. On the basis of the contact(More)
Measurements of the advancing contact angles for aqueous solutions of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDDS) or sodium hexadecyl sulfonate (SHS) in mixtures with methanol, ethanol, or propanol on a quartz surface were carried out. On the basis of the obtained results and Young and Gibbs equations the critical surface tension of quartz wetting, the composition of the(More)
From measurements of the surface tension, density, viscosity and light scattering of aqueous solutions of methanol, ethanol and propanol at 293 K, their activity in the surface monolayer, surface excess concentration, and apparent and partial molar volume were determined. The surface excess concentration of alcohols at the water–air interface was determined(More)
