The influence of sorbitol on the adsorption of surfactants at the air-liquid interface

Abstract:

Neutron reflection and surface tension have been used to study the adsorption of the nonionic surfactant monododecyl hexaethylene glycol (C12E6) and the mixed nonionic-anionic surfactants n-dodecyl triethylene glycol (C12E3) and Sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) at the air-liquid interface. Water and a sorbitol (d-glucitol, CH2OH(HCOH)4CH2OH)/water mixture were selected as the solvents. The addition of 300 g/liter of sorbitol to an aqueous solution of C12E6 reduces the critical micellar concentrat...
