Abstract

Interaction of 1-butanol (BuOH) with a cationic surfactant, cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) aggregate, in water and salt solution has been studied by viscometry, small-angle neutron scattering (SANS), and 2D-NMR techniques. The experimental results are interpreted in terms of a possible micellar growth occurring in the presence of added alcohol and salt. It was observed that the addition of BuOH strongly influences the viscosity of the CTAB/salt micellar system, reaching a peak viscosity at about 0.5% w/v of BuOH over a range of salt concentrations. Scattering measurements support the idea of a structural transformation by the observation of a spectral shift (broadening) as the total concentration of surfactant varies, indicating a decrease in the intermicellar distance and narrow size distribution. The chemical shift from 1H NMR measurements gave complementary data on the solubilization of BuOH in CTAB micelles, whereas the expected locus (site) of the additive added to the surfactant including the dynamics of the molecules in micellar aggregates were successfully correlated by significant and positive cross peaks obtained from two-dimensional nuclear Overhauser effect spectroscopy (2D-NOESY).
