Ultra-long-chain surfactants, particularly C-tailed ones, have attracted considerable attention because of their ease of self-assembly into wormlike micelles (WLMs). Commercial C-tailed surfactants often contain non-negligible amounts of chemical residues introduced during their production. Since the noncovalent driving force of wormlike self-assembly can be greatly affected by the composition, we hypothesized that the residual chemicals could play a significant role in tuning the micelle microstructure and macroscopic properties of the surfactants.

The photo-responsive wormlike micelles constructed by Gemini surfactants and cinnamate derivatives play a great role in the field of smart materials. However, how the structure of cinnamate derivative...
When tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide, TTAB, is added to aqueous solution of sodium salicylate, NaSal, the threading of the aromatic anion into the micellar palisade leads to the formation of worml...
A quantitative molecular-thermodynamic theory of the growth of giant wormlike micelles of nonionic surfactants can be developed on the basis of a generalized model, which includes the classical "phase...
Small angle X-ray scattering with in situ shear was employed to study the assembly and ordering of dispersions of gold nanorods within wormlike micelle solutions formed by the surfactant cetylpyridini...
It is of great significance to explore novel applications of renewable resources. In this study, a rosin-based anionic surfactant (abbreviated R-11-2-Na), which contains a large hydrophobic group of 3...
To enhance the oral bioavailability of the antioxidants trans-resveratrol and trans-ε-viniferin from Vineatrol30 grapevine-shoot extract, the native powder was incorporated into micelles....
This will be a single-arm prospective internally-controlled study. Patients will undergo percutaneous externally-assembled laparoscopic surgery where one or more 3 mm instruments are added...
Residual neuromuscular blockade is frequently observed in the early postoperative period when patients have received a general anesthetic with muscle relaxants. At the present time it is ...
Scientist have begun to realize that many types of bacteria often live together as a complex community, and the investigators wish to apply that idea to the bacteria in the respiratory sys...
Background: - Some types of cancer, like cancer of the esophagus, are difficult to detect at an early stage. A possible detection method involves collecting breath samples to look for che...
Particles consisting of aggregates of molecules held loosely together by secondary bonds. The surface of micelles are usually comprised of amphiphatic compounds that are oriented in a way that minimizes the energy of interaction between the micelle and its environment. Liquids that contain large numbers of suspended micelles are referred to as EMULSIONS.
Illicit use of chemicals and products whose vapors can be inhaled to produce a rapid mind-altering effect. Inhalants include aerosols, gases, and volatile solvents that are often inhaled repeatedly to achieve the short-lived intoxicating effect.
The volume of air contained in the lungs at the end of a maximal inspiration. It is the equivalent to each of the following sums: VITAL CAPACITY plus RESIDUAL VOLUME; INSPIRATORY CAPACITY plus FUNCTIONAL RESIDUAL CAPACITY; TIDAL VOLUME plus INSPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus functional residual capacity; or tidal volume plus inspiratory reserve volume plus EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME plus residual volume.
The volume of air remaining in the LUNGS at the end of a normal, quiet expiration. It is the sum of the RESIDUAL VOLUME and the EXPIRATORY RESERVE VOLUME. Common abbreviation is FRC.
Chemicals that are used to oxidize pigments and thus effect whitening.
