Chitosan is a biopolymer that has many potential applications in the industry because of its unique physicochemical properties. Many of these properties depend on its ability to interact with surfactants. The purpose of this study was to investigate interactions between chitosan (Ch), a cationic polysaccharide, and sodium lauryl ether sulfate (SLES), an anionic surfactant with ethylene oxide groups in the polar part of the molecule, in aqueous solution. Changes in the Ch/SLES mixtures were…

Chitosan-based smart hybrid materials: a physico-chemical perspective.
This review focuses on the physico-chemical properties of chitosan-based materials, including solubility, mechanical resistance, barrier properties, and thermal behaviour, and provides a link to the chemical peculiarities of chITosan, such as its intrinsic low solubilities, high rigidity, large charge separation, and strong tendency to form intra- and inter-molecular hydrogen bonds.

Partitioning of Selected Anisole and Veratrole Derivatives between Water and Anionic Surfactant Micelles
The UV absorption spectra of six structurally related derivatives of anisole and veratrole were recorded and the relations between the molecular structures of the solute and the head group of the surfactant and the value of the micelle-water partition coefficient as well as the octanol-water one were discussed.

Polycation-sodium lauryl ether sulfate-type surfactant complexes: influence of ethylene oxide length.
This work has studied the influence of the size of the EO block on complexation with two model polycations: linear polyDADMAC and branched PEI, and the CAC value of the investigated complexes turns out to be rather independent of theEO block size, which explains why the Lochhead-Goddard effect is most effective for small EO blocks.
