Transformation of vesicles formed in DTAB/C11-p-PhCNa aqueous surfactant two-phase (ASTP) was observed by the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The trans-conformation of the gemini surfactant in the aggregates was considered to be the important factor for constructing the multi-lamellar structure of the vesicle wall. The cation-π interaction between the quaternary ammonium cation and the aromatic ring in the spacer was determined by the UV-Vis spectrum analysis, which, as well as the…

Vesicle aggregation based on hydrophobic interactions
Vesicles were formed in aqueous mixtures of gemini anionic surfactant, O,O′-bis(sodium 2-alkylcarboxylate)-p-dibenzenediol (referred to as Cmϕ2Cm, m = 10, 12), and single-chain cationic surfactant,
Effects of length and hydrophilicity/hydrophobicity of diamines on self-assembly of diamine/SDS gemini-like surfactants.
This work studied gemini-like surfactants formed from anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and cationic charged bola-type diamines with hydrophilic or hydrophobic spacers of different lengths using surface tension, small angle neutron scattering, isothermal titration microcalorimetry and cryogenic transmission electron microscopy, and provides guidance to efficiently improve the performance of Surfactants.
Alkyltrimethylammonium bromide-induced aggregate transition of carboxylate gemini surfactant with a p-dibenzenediol spacer from networks to thread-like micelles to vesicles
The gemini surfactants, O,O’-bis(sodium 2-dodecyl-carboxylate)-p-dibenzenediol and O,O’-bis(sodium 2-decylcarboxylate)-p-dibenzenediol (denoted as C12ϕ2C12 and C10ϕ2C10, respectively), were
Recovery of Lignin peroxidase from Amauroderma rugosum using aqueous two-phase system / Zeinabsadat Masoudian
It was indicated that hydrophobic interaction, electrostatic interaction and salting out effect were the driving force for partitioning of LiP into top phase and the IL-based ATPS is expected to render a suitable method for bio-product separation.


The Formation and Properties of Multilamellar Vesicles in Gemini/SDS/H2O System
Self‐assembled vesicles have drawn much research attention in recent years for their special structure. The vesicles formed in mixed solutions of gemini surfactant 12‐3‐12,2Br−and traditional
Microstructures in Aqueous Solutions of Mixed Dimeric Surfactants: Vesicle Transformation into Networks of Thread-Like Micelles
The microstructures in mixtures of two dimeric (gemini) surfactants, the dimethylene-1,2- and eicosamethylene-1,20-bis(dimethyldodecylammonium bromide), referred to as 12-2-12 and 12-20-12, have been
Effect of the nature of the spacer on the aggregation properties of gemini surfactants in an aqueous solution.
The microviscosity study indicates that the gemini surfactant with a hydrophilic, flexible spacer forms a more closely packed micelle structure than the one with ahydrophobic, rigid spacer.
Strings of vesicles: flow behavior in an unusual type of aqueous gel.
It is proposed that the vesicles are cohesive owing to protrusion of short chains from the vESicle surfaces, thereby creating hydrophobic "patches" whose intervesicular overlap supersedes the normal membrane/membrane repulsive forces.
Templating hollow polymeric spheres from catanionic equilibrium vesicles: Synthesis and characterization
Hollow polymer spheres of styrene and divinyl benzene can be templated from catanionic equilibrium vesicles formed by cetyltrimethylammonium tosylate (CTAT) and sodium dodecylbenzenesulfonate (SDBS)
