Title Surface and micelle properties of novel multi-dentate surfactants
Abstract Novel multi-dentate surfactants, based on alkyl amines of varying hydrophobicity were synthesized, and molecular structures were characterized by IR, UV–vis, NMR and FAB-MS. The new surfactants have good water solubility and are highly efficient at reducing aqueous surface tension. Small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) studies were carried out with aqueous solutions in D2O to study aggregation. Spherical micelles were shown to form, and these grow with increasing alkyl chain length; their conformation is unusual compared to conventional linear chain surfactants.
