Synthesis Characterization and Remediation Potential of Polymerizable Surfactant Monomers of N,N-diallyl-N,N-dialkyl Ammonium Chloride
Polymers and High Performance Materials
The amphiphilic polymerizable surfactants N,N-diallyl-N,N-dioctylammonium chloride, N,N-diallyl-N,N-didecylammonium chloride and N,N-diallyl-N,N-didodecylammonium chloride have been synthesized. Experimental techniques including dynamic light scattering, fluorescence spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance, and atomic force microscopy indicate the monomers form large, well-organized structures similar to vesicles of naturally occurring lipids. Studies of the sequestration of a model foulant by the didodecyl monomer revealed a strong interaction with a high degree of binding. The loading of higher amounts of cresol causes a change in the properties of the monomer assemblies indicating the formation of mixed micellar aggregates. The large monomer aggregates are retained by the dialysis membrane and present a potential alternative to small micellar assemblies.
