In this article, we discuss the structure and composition of mixed DNA-cationic surfactant adsorption layers on both hydrophobic and hydrophilic solid surfaces. We have focused on the effects of the bulk concentrations, the surfactant chain length, and the type of solid surface on the interfacial layer structure (the location, coverage, and conformation of… CONTINUE READING
