6 CMC, critical micelle concentration A number of studies cited above (1), (3-9), (13-15), (17), (19), (20), (22-25), (27-31) addressed the effect of surfactants on the behavior of HEUR, HASE, and HMHEC associative thickeners.
5) The preferred polymers interact with the surfactant and effectively shift the critical micelle concentration (CMC) to higher concentrations, while lowering the critical aggregation concentration; the latter being the concentration at which the surfactant selectively interacts with the polymer rather than adsorbing at the liquid surface (Figure 1).
carried out an investigation for the determination of the critical micelle concentration (CMC) of long-chain imidazolium based ILs and with the respective chain length of alkyltriammonium salts in water and 20 mM phosphate buffer.
This results in a significantly lower critical micelle concentration (CMC) and a far higher surface activity (factor up to 100x/1000x), making them quite efficient.
For surface chemistry, dynamic contact angle, surface tension and critical micelle concentration systems are highlighted.
A fluorescence probe, N-phenylnaphlylamine, was used to estimate the critical micelle concentration (CMC) and the polarity of the hydrocarbon core of the micelle.
Among the topics covered in the book are: "Techniques for studying block copolymers," "Dynamic processes in block copolymer melts," "The critical micelle concentration," "Adsorption from block copolymer solutions," "Gelation in block copolymer solutions," "Structure formation in semicrystalline diblocks," "Crystallization kinetics in semicrystalline block copolymers," and "Theories for binary block copolymer/homopolymer blends.
