Abstract:
Gemini surfactants are superior to their corresponding monomeric surfactants in features such as much lower CMC values and greater efficiency. In spite of a lot of research on them there are, however, still many basic questions are unanswered. Even the determination of such a simple quantity as the coverage is uncertain at a level which would be unacceptable with other surfactants. The motivation of the work in this thesis was to try and make a systematic study of a range of surface properties associated with (a) the architecture of the gemini surfactant ion and (b) the counterion.
