Ternary phase diagrams in surfactant science

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Phase equilibria in ternary systems ionic surfactant-long chain alcohol-water are discussed in relation to Per Ekwall's pioneering contributions to the field. It is described how modeling of the thermodynamic behavior leads to a better understanding of what molecular interactions cause the rich phase behavior of these systems.
