Abstract

Over the last decade significant advances have been made in developing further understanding of how minute chemical and physical changes in multi-component colloidal dispersions may have significant impact on many microscopic film properties. This chapter focuses on stimuli-responsive behavior of two commonly utilized surfactants, sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), and sodium dioctyl sulfosuccinate (SDOSS) in the synthesis of colloidal dispersions as well as a result of film formation under various conditions. The effects of SDS and SDOSS structural similarities and differences are discussed in the context of external and internal stimuli such as temperature, pH, ionic strength, particle morphology, and covalent and ionic crosslinkers present in an aqueous phase, and the resulting chemical and physical properties during and after coalescence.
