Coexistence of Spheres and Rods in Micellar Solution of Dodecyldimethylamine Oxide

Abstract

Micelles of dimethyldodecylamine oxide (DMDAO) are known to exhibit sphere-to-rod transitions as a function of pH and ionic strength. Long micelles are stabilized at pH corresponding to half-protonation, because hydrogen bonding between nonionic and protonated monomers yields an effectively double-tailed monomer whose geometry favors cylindrical growth… (More)
