Synthesis and Characterization of Oligomeric Micelles of Sodium Carboxylates
In efforts to study the dynamics of polymeric/oligomeric micelles poly(sodium 10-undecenoate), poly(sodium 11-dodecenoate) and poly(sodium 12-tridecenoate) were synthesized in micellar solutions using ammonium persulfate as an initiator. These surfactants are characterized by IR and NMR. In addition, the synthesis and characterization of the monomeric terminally unsaturated sodium carboxylates are reported. It was found that the effect, previously reported for sodium 10-undecenoate of terminal unsaturation of a single tailed carboxylate on the CMC value is almost equivalent to the removal of 1 methylene unit from the corresponding saturated chain.
