Abstract [en]

Small angle neutron scattering measurements have been performed on three systems (HFDeP-d5-C (N-1(1,1,2,2-tetrahydroperfluorodecanoyl)pyridinium-d5 chloride)/C16PC in 63 mM NaCl; HFDeP-d5-C/C12PC in 200 mM NaCl, and as an example of an ideally mixed system, SDS/SDS-d25 in 200 mM NaCl) contg. micelles formed in a binary mixt. of surfactants, in order to investigate the compn. distribution of the mixed micelles. The exptl. data were collected varying the contrast between the av. scattering length d. of micelles and aq. solvent by changing the H2O/D2O ratio. Anal. of data includes a model-independent approach-the indirect Fourier transformation method and direct modeling-simultaneous fit at all contrasts by the scattering from micelles of equal size and shape with compn. distribution and an effective interaction. It has earlier been shown (Almgren, M.; Garamus, V. M. J. Phys. Chem. B 2005, 109, 11348) that for micelles of equal size, independent of the compn., and with negligible intermicellar interactions, the scattered intensity at zero angle varies quadratically with the contrast, with the min. intensity at the nominal match point proportional to s2, the variance of the micelle compn. distribution. Within the regular soln. framework, the compn. distribution and its variance are uniquely defined by the value of the interaction parameter and the micelle aggregation no. At 25 DegC, the first system gave s = 0.37, corresponding to a broad, bimodal compn. distribution, the second s = 0.22, a broad distribution with a shallow min. at the midpoint. For SDS/SDS-d25, we found s = 0.006 +- 0.030, which is a smaller value than that of the binominal compn. distribution expected for an ideally mixed system.
