Amphipathicity and self-assembly behavior of amphiphilic alginate esters.

Abstract

Amphiphilic alginate esters (Alg-C(n)) with different degree of substitution (DS) and hydrophobic alkyl length were synthesized by the reaction between partially protonated sodium alginate and aliphatic alcohols (octanol, dodecanol or hexadecanol) and characterized by conventional methods. The critical micelles concentration (CMC) of Alg-C(n) was determined… (More)
