• A small angle neutron scattering study on the mixtures of pluronic L121 and anionic surfactant AOT

Small angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments have been carried out on the micellar solutions containing mixtures of a hydrophobic triblock copolymer (L121, EO5PO68EO5) and a hydrophobic anionic surfactant (AOT, sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl)sulphosuccinate) in water with varying ratio (𝑅) of AOT to L121 for $R = 0.15$, 0.2, 0.3, 0.5 and 0.6. It is known that either L121 or AOT alone forms vesicles in water, but in the mixture with appropriate ratio of the two components a thermodynamically stable, isotropic solution of apparently small micelle-like aggregates is formed. We find that these micelles are prolate ellipsoidal.
