Restructuring of hydrophobic surfaces created by surfactant adsorption to mica surfaces.

Abstract:

Hydrophobic surfaces created by the adsorption of a monolayer of surfactants, such as CTAB or DODAB, to mica display long-range mutual attraction when placed in water. Initially, this attraction was considered to be due to hydrophobic interaction, but more careful measurements using AFM showed that the surfactant monolayer undergoes rearrangements to produce charged patches on the surface; therefore, the nature of the long-range interaction is due to the electrostatic interaction between patc...
