On the urea action mechanism: a comparative study on the self-assembly of two sugar-based surfactants.

Abstract

Studies on the effect of urea on micelle formation and structure of n-octyl-beta-D-thioglucoside (OTG) and N-decanoyl-N-methylglucamide (MEGA-10) were carried out by using the steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence techniques, together with combined static and dynamic light scattering measurements. A similar increase in the critical micelle… (More)
