Effect of surfactant structure on interfacial properties

Abstract

– We study surfactants at the oil/water interface using Dissipative Particle Dynamics simulations at constant μsurfPT . The interfacial tension depends on the surfactant branching in a subtle way. For a given interfacial concentration, a double-tail surfactant is more efficient than its single-tail isomer only if the oil-head repulsion is sufficiently… (More)
