Mechanism of Cationic Surfactant Adsorption at the Solid-aqueous Interface

Atkin, R; Craig, Vincent; Wanless, Erica J; Biggs, Simon


Until recently, the rapid time scales associated with the formation of an adsorbed surfactant layer at the solid-aqueous interface has prevented accurate investigation of adsorption kinetics. This has led to the mechanism of surfactant adsorption being inferred from thermodynamic data. These explanations have been further hampered by a poor knowledge of the equilibrium adsorbed surfactant morphology, with the structure often misinterpreted as simple monolayers or bilayers, rather than the...[Show more]
