Surfactants: materials for interface design and spontaneous formation of structures
This paper mostly describes the research on surfactant solutions performed at this centre in the past few years. A correlation between microemulsion structure and precipitation reaction of AgCl is described. Experimental and theoretical research culminating in the development of a theme for analysing the structure of colloidal systems is described. Recent results on the discovery of new viscoelastic surfactant systems are presented.
