Nature of CTAB/Water/Chloroform Reverse Micelles at Above- and Subzero Temperatures Studied by NMR and Molecular Dynamics Simulations.

The nature and stability of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) reverse micelles in chloroform formed above the critical micellar concentration at above- and subzero temperatures were examined by NMR and molecular dynamics simulations. The experiments showed that the supercooled micellar water pool becomes unstable upon cooling to relatively high… (More)
