Neutron reflection and small-angle neutron scattering studies of a fluorocarbon telomer surfactant.
Dilute aqueous phase behavior of a novel tris(hydroxymethyl)acrylamidomethane (THAM)-derived telomer bearing a perfluorohexyl hydrophobic chain, F6THAM6, has been investigated. Fluorinated polyhydroxy surfactants of this kind find use in emerging biomedical applications. Neutron reflection (NR) and drop volume surface tension (DVT) methods have been used to determine the critical micelle concentration (cmc=4.7 x 10(-4) mol x dm(-3)) and surface adsorption parameters (at the cmc NR gives a mol...Expand abstract
