Sizes and Anisometricity of Micelles in Lyotropic Liquid Crystalline Mesophases: Sodium Lauryl Sulphate/Water/Decanol Lyotropic System

Größe und Anisometrie von Mizellen in lyotropen, flüssigkristallinen Mesophasen: Das lyotrope System Natriumlaurylsulfat/Wasser/Dekanol
A. Nesrullajev


Structural peculiarities of the rod-like micelles in lyotropic liquid crystalline nematic-calamitic and hexagonal mesophases have been investigated. The lengths, the parameters of anisometricity, the form factors and the volumes of these micelles have been determined. The method of the electrical conductivity anisotropy in the orientational shear flow has been used. The rod-like micelles of nematic-calamitic and hexagonal mesophases were considered as the prolonged ellipsoids.


Es wurden die spezifisch strukturellen Merkmale von Stäbchenmizellen in lyotropen, flüssigkristallinen nematisch-calamitischen und hexagonalen Mesophasen untersucht. Die Längen, die ansiometrischen Parameter, die Formfaktoren und die Volumen der Mizellen wurden bestimmt. Es wurde die Methode der Anisotropie der elektrischen Leitfähigkeit in der orientierten Scherströmung eingesetzt. Die stäbchenartigen Mizellen der nematisch-calamitischen und hexagonalen Mesophasen wurden als verlängerte Ellipsoide betrachtet.
