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).
For surface chemistry, dynamic contact angle, surface tension and critical micelle concentration systems are highlighted.
