Thermal transition of micellar structure formed by intermolecular compound between surfactants and phenol derivatives
1995 - 1997
Investigating Researcher (1)：
Aqueous solution of equimolar mixture between surfactants like CTAB and phenol derivatives like o-iodophenol exhibits striking viscoelastic behavior even in highly dilute solution at room temperature. Microscopic observation shows that the solution contains gigantic rod-like micelle. The solution becomes normal viscous solution on warming. This means that there might occur a drastic change in the micellar atructure during heating. It is our purpose to clarify the energetic as well as entropic aspects of the structural change.
