Abstract:

The goals of this research have been 1 to generate knowledge concerning the nature and dynamics of adsorption of surfactants in aqueous solutions and 2 to generate innovative and fundamental paradigms that will allow an understanding of the adsorption at the molecular level. The spectroscopic probe technique has been employed to investigate aqueous solutions of micelles, polyelectrolytes, cyclodextrins and DNA. In addition, the interactions of aqueous suspension of surfactants and polymers with solid surfaces have been investigated.
