Study of synergistic interactions between SiO2 nanoparticles and CTAB in the presence of NaCl: relationships with the formation and stabilization of hexadecane-in-water emulsions

, , , ,
The synergistic interactions between silica (SiO2) nanoparticles and a surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) on the shear viscoelastic properties of the hexadecane-water (H/W) interfacial films as well as the formation and stability of emulsions were investigated. [...]

Characterizing Environmental Transformation of Multi-walled Carbon Nanotubes and Carbon Nano-Fiber Composites using Thermal Analysis and Related Hyphenated Techniques

, , , , , ,
Thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) coupled with gas chromatography and mass spectroscopy (TGA/GCMS), for the evolved gas analysis, has given insight to the stability and kinetics of structural changes and determining adsorbed organics to nanomaterials and nanocomposites. [...]
