Rheological study of interactions between non-ionic surfactants and polysaccharide thickeners used in textile printing
Rebeka Fijan, Sonja Šostar-Turk, Romano Lapasin, 2007, original scientific article

Abstract: The influence of four non-ionic surfactants (isododecyl and cetyl polyoxyethylene ethers) on aqueous polysaccharide solutions (sodium alginate, guar gum, and sodium carboxymethyl guar), applicable for textile printing pastes, were studied via rheological measurements. Rheology of polysaccharide-surfactant solutions in aqueous matrices is primarily governed by polymer content, which imparts marked shear-thinning and viscoelastic character to the system. Such properties are modulated in moderate but sensible way by changes in surfactant concentration or type. Above 3% surfactants addition to non-substituted guar gum solutions results in a significant impact leading to phase separation and a particular strongly associated phase is formed due to hydrogen bonds between ethylene oxy units from the surfactant and primary hydroxyl groups in guar. A satisfactory fitting of viscosity data is obtained with both the Cross equation and the Roberts-Barnes-Carew model. The experimental results of mechanical spectra can be described quite satisfactory with both the Friedrich-Braun and the generalized Maxwell models.

Effects of surfactants and their mixtures on inhibition of the corrosion process of ferritic stainless steel
Regina Fuchs-Godec, 2009, original scientific article

Abstract: The corrosion inhibition characteristics regarding mixtures of cationic/zwitterionic types of surfactant (Myristyltrimethylammonium bromide/Palmitylsulfo-betaineas), and non-ionic surfactant TRITON-X-405 mixed with 1 mM of KBr, as corrosion inhibitors for stainless steel (SS) (type X4Cr13) in aqueous solutions of 2 M H2SO4 were investigated using potentiodynamic polarisation measurements. The polarisation data showed that mixtures of the surfactants used in this study acted as mixed-type inhibitors, adsorbing on the stainless steel surface in agreement with the Flory-Huggins adsorption isotherm. The tensiometric results of this study suggest the existence of a second state of aggregation for zwitterionic/cationic surfactant mixtures. From these values of the free energy of adsorption, which in both mixtures decreased with respect to a single surfactant, we concluded that the adsorption in mixtures was stronger. The mixtures studied here showed good inhibition properties for ferritic stainless steel type X4Cr13 in 2 M H2SO4 solution.
