Surfactant Self-Assembly in Cylindrical Silica Nanopores


The aggregative adsorption of a nonionic surfactant (C12E5) in the cylindrical pores of SBA-15 ordered mesoporous silica (pore diameter 8 nm) was studied by small-angle neutron scattering (SANS). Scattering profiles obtained at contrast-matching conditions between the aqueous solvent and the silica matrix can be represented quantitatively by an analytical… (More)
