The total-reflection X-ray absorption fine structure (XAFS) method previously employed for the adsorption of dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB) at the air/water interface was applied to that in the presence of NaBr. The surface concentration of the bromide ions Gamma(X)(B) of DTAB and NaBr was evaluated by using the Br K-edge absorption jump values of(More)
The interface between water and mixed surfactant solutions of CH(3)(CH(2))(19)OH and CF(3)(CF(2))(7)(CH(2))(2)OH in hexane was studied with interfacial tension and X-ray reflectivity measurements. Measurements of the tension as a function of temperature for a range of total bulk surfactant concentrations and for three different values of the molal ratio of(More)
According to the WHO, about 80% of visually impaired persons in the world are with low visual capacity. It is considered that LVs' safe independent mobility will be improved as employing Tactile Walking Surface Indicators (TWSIs). In the night, guidelines for constructing warning blocks, a kind of tactile surface indicator, have not been well established.(More)
Thermodynamic treatment of thin liquid films in Part III of this series was applied to foam films stabilized by sodium dodecyl sulfate. Miscibility of sodium chloride and sodium dodecyl sulfate in the adsorbed films at the film surfaces and transition between the black films were studied by measuring film thickness and contact angle. A discontinuous change(More)
The mole fraction of chloride ion of dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB) and dodecyltrimethylammonium chloride (DTAC) mixture in the adsorbed film XHC was estimated not only by the thermodynamic analysis of the surface tension data but also by analyzing the Br K-edge jump of the XAFS spectrum under the total reflection condition (TRXAFS method). The(More)
Some people with low vision or elderly persons tend to walk while watching a nearby floor, therefore, they often overlook or hard to read suspended signs. In this study, we propose two kinds of voice guides, and an experiment is conducted by participants with low vision using these voice guides and graphic floor signs in order to investigate effectiveness(More)
The line tension of an air/hexadecane/aqueous solution of an dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB) system was measured as a function of the molality of DTAB at 298.15 K by means of a newly constructed apparatus. It was estimated to be on the order of 10(-10)-10(-12) N, which is comparable to the theoretical estimation. Furthermore, its sign was reversed(More)
Adsorption and micelle formation of a surfactant in the presence of inorganic salts with different charge numbers of cations were investigated from the viewpoint of mixed adsorption and micelle formation of salt and surfactant. Surface tension of aqueous solutions of the mixtures of octyl methyl sulfoxide (OMS) with calcium chloride and lanthanum chloride(More)
The emulsion film has become the focus of the study of emulsion because the film stability and structure play a crucial role on the whole stability and structure of emulsions. In this study, the single emulsion film stabilized by tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide (C14TAB) in dodecane phase has been investigated thermodynamically. In order to make clear(More)
Miscibility and interaction of decyldimethylphosphine oxide (DePO) with ammonium chloride (AC), hexylammonium chloride (HAC), and dodecylammonium chloride (DAC) in adsorbed films and micelles were studied by surface tension measurements. Phase diagrams were drawn for the mixed adsorption, mixed micelle formation, and equilibrium between adsorbed films and(More)
