Synergistic and nonsynergistic surfactant-water mixtures of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), lauryl betaine (C12B), and cocoamidopropyl betaine (CAPB) systems are studied using molecular simulation to understand the role of interactions among headgroups, tailgroups, and water on structural and thermodynamic properties at the air-water interface. SDS is an… CONTINUE READING
