Cyclodextrin-surfactant coassembly depends on the cyclodextrin ability to crystallize.


Full equilibrium phase diagrams are presented for two ternary systems composed of the cationic surfactant dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB), water (D(2)O), and a cyclodextrin, either β-cyclodextrin (β-CD) or (2-hydroypropyl)-β-cyclodextrin (2HPβCD). (2)H NMR, SAXS, WAXS, and visual examination were used to determine the phase boundaries and… (More)
