The kinetics of the sphere-to-rod transition was studied in aqueous micelle solutions of triblock copolymer poly(ethylene oxide)-poly(propylene oxide)-poly(ethylene oxide) pluronic P103 (PEO(17)PPO(60)PEO(17)). This transition was triggered by a temperature jump from the sphere phase to the rod phase and monitored with dynamic light scattering. The(More)
The shear thickening behavior of dilute micellar solutions of hexadecyltrimethylammonium-type surfactants with different counterions (tosylate, 3- and 4-fluorobenzoate, vinylbenzoate and salicylate) and of n-alkyltetradecylammonium bromide (CnTAB), with n = 14, 16 and 18, is examined here. These solutions undergo a shear thickening transition due to the(More)
The phase and rheological behavior of hexadecyl(trimethyl)azanium; 2-hydroxybenzoate (CTAS), and water as a function of surfactant concentration and temperature are investigated here. The critical micellization concentration (cmc(1)) and the concentration at which the structure of aggregates changes (cmc(2)) as well as the Krafft temperature (T(K)) are(More)
The aggregation properties of 2-, 3-, and 4-fluorobenzoic acids (2FBA, 3FBA, and 4FBA, respectively) and their salts with hexadecyltrimethylammonium cations (HTA2FB, HTA3FB, and HTA4FB) in water were studied with a battery of techniques. Their activity at the air/solution interface has been also studied. The position of the fluorine atom in the acid(More)
