Small-angle neutron scattering study of the micellization of photosensitive surfactants in solution and in the presence of a hydrophobically modified polyelectrolyte.

Abstract

The self-assembly behavior of a light-sensitive azobenzene-based surfactant, both in pure surfactant solutions and in the presence of a hydrophobically modified, water-soluble polymer, has been investigated using small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), light scattering, and UV-vis absorption techniques. The surfactant undergoes reversible photoisomerization… (More)
