The growth behavior of aggregates formed in aqueous solutions of the anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) in the presence of the cationic hydrophobic salts o-toluidine hydrochloride (OTHC) and m-toluidine hydrochloride (MTHC) has been studied by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) techniques. DLS studies(More)
The electric field correlation function of light scattered from a polydispersed population of spherical particles having log-normal distribution with varying polydispersity is simulated. The correlation function with different polydispersity is compared with the method of cumulants over a wide range of correlation time. The large positive deviation of the(More)
The geometric and electronic structures of Si(n), Si(n) (+), and AlSi(n-1) clusters (2< or =n< or =13) have been investigated using the ab initio molecular orbital theory under the density functional theory formalism. The hybrid exchange-correlation energy function (B3LYP) and a standard split-valence basis set with polarization functions [6-31G(d)] were(More)
The geometric and electronic structures of Si(n), Si(n)-, and PSi(n-1) clusters (2 < or = n < or = 13) have been investigated using the ab initio molecular orbital theory formalism. The hybrid exchange-correlation energy functional (B3LYP) and a standard split-valence basis set with polarization functions (6-31+G(d)) were employed to optimize geometrical(More)
The microrheology of cationic micellar solutions has been investigated as a function of added organic salts using quasielastic light scattering (QELS). Two organic salts, sodium p-toluene sulfonate and sodium salicylate, were used to induce microstructural changes in cetyl trimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) micelles. The mean-squared displacement (MSD) of(More)
A novel effect of any oxide particle/intermetallics enhancing hydrogen generation from water as compared to water alone when subjected to ultrasonic irradiation is reported here. Addition of methanol to water or decrease in particle size also improved the hydrogen yield. Hydrogen generation from water was further enhanced by the presence of both methanol(More)
The effect of anthranilic acid, an aromatic amino acid, on the structural characteristics of nonionic micelles of Triton X-100 at different pH values was investigated by light scattering and small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) measurements. The scattered light intensity decreases as pH is increased or decreased on either side of the isoelectric point (IEP(More)
The selection of an appropriate surface as a solid phase for coupling antibodies is a critical step in the development of solid-phase immunoassays. Availability of a new method of preactivating the surface of polystyrene tubes with a layer of another polymer for enhanced immobilization of antibodies seems to be promising. In this paper, we report the(More)
Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) films of the water-soluble dye phenosafranine (PS) have been prepared by its adsorption from aqueous dye solution to an arachidic acid (AA) monolayer at the air-water interface. Atomic force microscopy (AFM) images of the LB films revealed the effect of change in pH of deposition on the degree of complexation of AA with the PS dye.(More)
