In the present study, a series of gemini surfactants with amide group (abbreviated as (m = 12–16, n = 1, 2)) were synthesized. Complementary characterizations of their structure by spectroscopic methods such as IR, 1 H-NMR, MS, and investigations of their properties such as measurements of the conductivity, the surface tension, the foaming and the emulsifying capacity were performed. The results showed that almost all products had a Krafft point below 0°C, except the C 16 –(EO)–E–C 16 surfactant. Furthermore, the equilibrium surface tension (γ CMC ) of the synthesized Gemini surfactants at the CMC was determined. For C 12 -(EO)-E-C 12 it is 41.0 mNm –1 , for C 14 -(EO)-E-C 14 43.8 mNm –1 , for C 16 -(EO)-E-C 16 46.7 mNm –1 and for C 12 -(EO) 2 -E-C 12 41.9 mNm –1 . The addition of the inorganic salt NaBr could significantly increase their surface activities. In addition, the thermodynamics of the micelle formation between 25°C–45°C was investigated. The results indicated that the micellization process was spontaneous. Finally, the obtained Gemini surfactants proved to be good emulsifiers, while their foaming properties were influenced by the self-coiling of the associated long alkyl tails.
