Thermally induced structural transitions from fluids to hydrogels with pH-switchable anionic wormlike micelles.

Abstract

A novel pH-switchable anionic wormlike micellar system has been developed by simply changing pH value of natural erucic acid solutions without needing specialized organic synthesis or addition of hydrotropes. Through rheology, optical transmittance, and cryo-TEM observation, it was found that at 60 °C, the 100 mM erucic acid solutions transform from low… (More)
