Dynamics of Surfactant Self-Assemblies: Micelles,

by Liposomes

Dynamics of Surfactant Self-Assemblies explains the dynamics of micellar equilibria, tracking surfactant exchange, and micelle formation/breakdown processes. Highlighting the structural similarities of amphiphilic block copolymers to surfactants, this volume elucidates the dynamics of more complex self-assemblies that surfactants and amphiphilic block copolymers form in solutions.The book first discusses self-assembling processes taking place in aqueous surfactant [...]
