Advances in Colloid and Interface Science
article i nfo Mixed polymer-surfactant systems have been intensively investigated in the last two decades, with the main focus on surfactant micelles as the surfactant aggregate in interaction. TheExpand
Vesicle Formation and General Phase Behavior in the Catanionic Mixture SDS−DDAB−Water. The Anionic-Rich Side
The phase behavior in the cationic-rich side of the phase diagram of the mixed system sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)−didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB)−water at 25 °C is presented. DDAB is aExpand
Size and Stability of Catanionic Vesicles: Effects of Formation Path, Sonication, and Aging
The majority of vesicles prepared from dispersions of phospholipids in water are nonequilibrium structures. Thermodynamically stable vesicles must display distinctive physicochemical properties. ToExpand
New serine-derived gemini surfactants as gene delivery systems.
Gemini surfactants have been extensively used for in vitro gene delivery. Amino acid-derived gemini surfactants combine the special aggregation properties characteristic of the gemini surfactantsExpand
Vesicle Formation and General Phase Behavior in the Catanionic Mixture SDS-DDAB-Water . The Anionic-Rich Side
Catanionic mixtures are aqueous mixtures of oppositely charged surfactants which display novel phase behavior and interfacial properties in comparison with those of the individual surfactants. OneExpand
Self-organization of double-chained and pseudodouble-chained surfactants: counterion and geometry effects
Self-organization in aqueous systems based on ionic surfactants, and their mixtures, can be broadly understood by a balance between the packing properties of the surfactants and double-layerExpand
Self-assembly in mixtures of a cationic and an anionic surfactant: the sodium dodecyl sulfate-didodecyldimethylammonium bromide-water system
The phase equilibria of the sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS)-didodecyldimethylammonium bromide (DDAB)-water system have been studied by water deuteron NMR and polarizing microscopy methods at 40 o C. 1 HExpand
Polymer-vesicle association.
Mixed polymer-surfactant systems have been intensively investigated in the last two decades, with the main focus on surfactant micelles as the surfactant aggregate in interaction. The main types ofExpand
Neat DODAB vesicles: Effect of sonication time on the phase transition thermodynamic parameters and its relation with incomplete chain freezing.
Vesicle solutions formed by the cationic lipid dioctadecyldimethylammonium bromide have been extensively used in the past 20 years as model membrane systems. Often, discrepancies are found in theExpand
Physicochemical and toxicological properties of novel amino acid-based amphiphiles and their spontaneously formed catanionic vesicles.
The design of efficient liposomal systems for drug delivery is of considerable biomedical interest. In this context, vesicles prepared from cationic/anionic surfactants may offer several advantages,Expand
