    Abstract: Surfactants are amphiphilic compounds that are widely used in various technological fields and biological systems. In many of these applications, mixtures of amphiphiles in organic solvents are employed for better performance The work aims at establishing the extent of ideality or otherwise in the mixed micelles of n-alkyl trimethylammonium bromide...

    Abstract: Thermochemical properties of fluorinated alcohols are needed for understanding their stability and reactions in the environment and in thermal process. Structures and thermochemical properties of these species were determined by the Gaussian M-062x/6-31+g (d,p) calculation. Contributions of entropy, S°298, and heat capacities, Cp(T) due to vibratio... Show More
