Stability of self-assembled hydrophobic surfactant layers in water.

Abstract:

Using contact angle measurements, surface force balance experiments, and AFM imaging, we have investigated the process of self-assembly of surfactants onto mica and the subsequent stability of those layers in pure water. In the case of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), the stability of a monolayer when immersed in pure water is found to be dependent on initial immersion time in surfactant, which is likely to be caused by an increase in the proportion of ion-exchange to ion-pair adsorptio...
