A series of gemini amphiphiles (bis(2'-heptadecyl-3'-ethylimidazolium)-1,n-alkane dibromide, abbreviated as Gn, n = 2, 4, 6, 8, 10) was found to form vesicles under ultrasonication in aqueous solution at very low concentration (5 microM), which was confirmed by dynamic light scattering (DLS) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The adsorption and… CONTINUE READING
