  1. 1. Nonionic surfactants : A multivariate study

    Author : Lise-Lott Uppgård; Michael Sjöström; Svante Wold; Jiri Damborsky; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AEO; APG; aquatic toxicity; cellulose reactivity; Fock; MLR; multivariate data analysis; nonionic surfactant; PCA; physicochemical properties; PLS; QSAR; surface activity; viscose; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : In this thesis technical nonionic surfactants are studied using multivariate techniques. The surfactants studied were alkyl ethoxylates (AEOs) and alkyl polyglucosides (APGs). The aquatic toxicity of the surfactants towards two organisms, a shrimp and a rotifer, was examined. The specified effect was lethality, LC50, as indicated by immobilisation. READ MORE

  2. 2. Structural Changes in Nonionic Surfactant Systems

    Author : Sanja Bulut; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Vesicles; Nonionic Surfactant; Wormlike Micelles; Lamellar Phase; NMR; MRI; SLS; DLS; cryo-fracture-TEM; centrifugation; cryo-TEM;

    Abstract : In this thesis we have studied structural changes of a nonionic surfactant self-assembly, as governed by changes in temperature and concentration. The techniques used in experimental investigations were dynamic and static light scattering, nuclear magnetic resonance and cryo-transmission electron microscopy (using a novel specimen preparation protocol).

  3. 3. Wetting and Capillary Flow of Surfactant Solutions and Inks

    Author : Maria von Bahr; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi; AKD; ink-jet printing; paper; penetration; absorption; adsorption; hydrophobicity; nonionic; surfactant; spreading; dynamic wetting;

    Abstract : This thesis presents results of a series of experimental studies on the spreading dynamics of small drops of complex solutions on solid surfaces. The capillary flow dynamics of complex solutions have also been investigated. READ MORE

  4. 4. Adsorption of polyhydroxyl based surfactants

    Author : Maria Matsson; Per Claesson; Robert Meszaros; KTH; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; surface chemistry; adsorption; surfactant; nonionic; alkyl glucoside APG ; ellipsometry; kinetics; alkyl amine oxide DDAO ; alkyl ammonium bromide DTAB ; solid liquid interface; synergism; coadsorption.;

    Abstract : Adsorption on solid surfaces from solution is a fundamental property of a surfactant. It might even be the most important aspect of surfactant behavior, since it influences many applications, such as cleaning, detergency, dispersion, separation, flotation, and lubrication. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adsorption at the Solid-Liquid Interface: An Atomic Force Microscopy Study

    Author : Lachlan M Grant; Fysikalisk kemi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Physical chemistry; hydrophobicity.; self-assembly; aggregate geometry; atomic force microscopy; nonionic; adsorption; surfactant; Fysikalisk kemi; Chemistry; Kemi;

    Abstract : The aim of the work presented in this thesis was to investigate nature of adsorption of amphiphiles to the solid–liquid interface. The surface aggregate structures of the zwitterionic surfactant dodecyldimethylammoniopropanesulfonate, (DDAPS) and a series of nonionic polyoxyethlylene glycol alkyl ethers (C10E5, C12E5, C12E8, C10E6, C14E6 and C16E6) have been determined by Atomic Force Microscopy on solids of different hydrophobicity.
