Abstract

Interactions between a polymer and a surfactant were studied via surface tension measurements. Poly(ethylene glycol) and sodium dodecyl sulfate were used as a polymer and a surfactant, respectively. The addition of polymer affected the CMC value of the surfactant. The interpretations of the data and theoretical plots of polymer-surfactant interactions are discussed using a theoretical model.
