Surfactin structures at interfaces and in solution: the effect of pH and cations.

Abstract:

We have investigated the interfacial and bulk phase structures of surfactin at different pH and in the presence of mono/divalent cations using neutron scattering techniques. Neutron reflectivity profiles were recorded at the air/water and sapphire/water interfaces as a function of pH and ionic strength. The air/water results show that surfactin has a hydrophobic ball-like structure and that changes in pH and cations lead to changes in the area per molecule and hydrophilicity of surfactin. How...
