Limitations in the application of the Gibbs equation to anionic surfactants at the air/water surface: sodium dodecylsulfate and sodium dodecylmonooxyethylenesulfate above and below the CMC.

Abstract:

This is a second paper responding to recent papers by Menger et al. and the ensuing discussion about the application of the Gibbs equation to surface tension (ST) data. Using new neutron reflection (NR) measurements on sodium dodecylsulfate (SDS) and sodium dodecylmonooxyethylene sulfate (SLES) above and below their CMCs and with and without added NaCl, in conjunction with the previous ST measurements on SDS by Elworthy and Mysels (EM), we conclude that (i) ST measurements are often seriously...
