Results on surfactant gels containing densely packed multilamellar vesicles are reported. The gels form spontaneously when the bilayers of L alpha or L3 phases of alkyldimethylaminoxide and cosurfactant are charged up by the addition of ionic surfactant or HCl. The rheological behaviour on addition of excess salt was studied by dynamic rheological measurements for systems with surfactants of different chainlengths. Both the storage modulus, G', and the yield stress, sigma y, decay with rising… CONTINUE READING
