Title

Dynamic Behavior in Hexadecyloctyldimethylammonium Bromide/alkane/water Microemulsions

Abstract

Self-diffusion coefficients of oil and water (by pulsed-gradient FT-NMR) and steady-state fluorescence anisotropy results for two solubilized probe molecules are reported in microemulsions of hexadecyloctyldimethylammonium bromide (C 8C 16DAB), alkanes, and water. The results show a highly oil-specific effect in microemulsion structure and in the curvature of the surfactant film, leading to the formation of o/w, bicontinuous, and w/o domains depending upon composition and on the nature of the alkane. © 1988 American Chemical Society.
