Abstract

Surfactant adsorption on quartz and wetting of glass by aqueous solutions of tetradecyltrimethylammonium bromide, Triton X-100, and their mixtures are studied. It is shown that synergistic adsorption of surfactants from mixed solutions occurs in the region of low concentrations. In the region of high concentrations, mixed molecular aggregates of the cationic and nonionic surfactants are formed on the surface. The structure of the mixed adsorption layers is discussed.
