Formulating additives in thermoresponsive surfactant-based nematic liquid crystals

Denk, Patrick ; Matthews, Lauren ; Zemb, Thomas ; Kunz, Werner


Bicelles can be formed by mixing in given mole fractions two ethoxylated alkyl ether carboxylic acid surfactants of very different HLB in water. We determine the effect of adding three of the most used additives in formulation in health- and home care: propylene glycol, glycerol, and ethanol. The effects of additives are determined and compared in a concentrated isotropic phase above the LCST, a ...
