Salt- and pH-Dependent Viscosity of SDS/LAPB Solutions: Experiments and a Semiempirical Thermodynamic Model.
Novel data is presented on the composition-, pH-, and salt-dependent zero shear viscosity of the commercially important mixture of anionic sodium dodecyl sulfate and zwitterionic lauramidopropyl betaine and how the pKa shift from NMR experiments can be used to parameterize the thermodynamic model is used.
A General Approach to Describing Fast Relaxation with Regard to Specific Features of Micellar Models
It has been shown that, when passing from the Becker–Döring finite-difference equations to the differential kinetic equation for the function of aggregate distribution over aggregation numbers, the
Liquid/liquid interface in periodic boundary condition.
Without any curvature effect on surface tension, planar (slab), cylindrical, and spherical structures are successively obtained as a function of the total composition and elongation of the box, in accordance with molecular dynamics simulations for a water/heptane system.


Theory of surfactant self-assembly : a predictive molecular thermodynamic approach
A thermodynamic treatment of surfactant self-assembly in aqueous media is developed that allows an a priori quantitative prediction of the aggregation behavior of surfactants, starting from their
Effect of Counterion Binding on Micellar Solution Behavior: 1. Molecular−Thermodynamic Theory of Micellization of Ionic Surfactants
A molecular−thermodynamic theory is developed to model the micellization of ionic surfactants with added electrolytes in aqueous solution, by combining a thermodynamic description of the micellar
Thermodynamics of mixed micellization. Pseudo-phase separation models
The authors present a general model of micellization of binary nonionic and binary ionic surfactant mixtures in dilute solution. For the latter they use the parameter ..beta.. to describe the
Kinetics of micellisation and relaxation of cylindrical micelles described by the difference Becker-Döring equation.
A comparison of the computed results with the analytical ones known from solutions of the linearized and nonlinearized differential Becker-Döring kinetic equations demonstrates a general agreement at higher concentrations of the surfactant above the critical micellar concentration.
Growth of Giant Rodlike Micelles of Ionic Surfactant in the Presence of Al3+ Counterions
The model of micelle growth, extended in this way, compared well with the experimental data and provides a quantitative description of the micelle size and charge as functions of the surfactant.
Mixed Micelle Solutions
Aqueous solutions of two surfactants exhibit striking alterations in physical properties such as surface tension and intensity of scattered light which can be associated with the formation of
