The influence of ionic strength on the rheological properties of polymer-like aqueous micellar solutions of cetyltrimethylammonium tosylate (CTAT) containing different salts (KCl, KBr, (COONa)2, K2SO4 or K3PO4) is investigated. The rheological behavior of the solutions is analyzed above the concentration where a micellar entanglement network is formed, varying surfactant and salt concentration, salt counterion valency and temperature. A master curve of the linear viscoelastic properties is… Expand

A master dynamic flow diagram for the shear thickening transition in micellar solutions.
A relationship between the shear thickening intensity and the differences in the hydrophobicity of counterions according to the Hofmeister-like anion series is reported, which leads to a master flow diagram that is built using several cetyltrimethylammonium-type surfactants with different counterions, according to a Hofmeisters-like series.
