At frequencies between 100 kHz and 400 MHz, ultrasonic attenuation spectra are measured at 25 degrees C for aqueous solutions of hexyl-, heptyl-, octyl-, nonyl-, and decyl-beta-D-maltopyranoside as well as of decyl-alpha-D-maltopyranoside. The spectra with surfactant concentration c above the relevant critical micelle concentration (cmc) display three… CONTINUE READING
