Abstract

The increased miscibility of a C14 diol in water with aqueous solutions present is attributed to the incorporation of the diol into the core of the copolymer micelles. As such, the micelle structure is determined with small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) by assuming that the structure is either a spherical, worm-like, or lamellar micelle. This paper reports on the studies made by rheology and SANS on complex aqueous mixtures and a hydrophobic nonionic C14 diol.
