Lamellar (Lα) and hexagonal (H1) mesophases, formed in mixtures of water and polyethylene oxide (PEO) oleylethers (average EO-numbers 5 (a), 8.5 (b) and 14 (c)) and pure hexaoxyethylene dodecylether (d), were investigated with small-angle X-ray diffraction. Analysis of repeat spacings shows a deviation from linear one- and two-dimensional swelling ofLα andH1, respectively, when a transition to a mesophase with a larger curvature of the interface is approached. With regard toLα, in this respect… CONTINUE READING
