Behavior of nonionic water soluble homopolymers at the air/water interface: Neutron reflectivity and surface tension results for poly(vinyl methyl ether)

Abstract:

The composition and structure of layers of poly(vinylmethyl ether) (PVME) adsorbed at the air/water interface have been determined by neutron reflection and surface tension. For temperatures above and below the cloud point and over most of the range of concentration, neutron reflection gives results in agreement with the Gibbs equation. However, an upturn in the surface tension at low concentrations, which has been observed in several related systems, is attributed to two possible contributio...
