Ultrasonic and viscosity measurements of samarium laurate in benzene-DMSO mixtures of different compositions (7:3 and 1:1 V/V) have been used to determine the critical micelle concentration (CMC), soap-solvent interaction, and various acoustic parameters of the system. The values of critical micelle concentration increase with increasing amount ofDMSO in the solvent mixtures. The viscosity results have been explained on the basis of equations proposed byEinstein,Vand. Moulik, andJones-Dole. The values of CMC for samarium laurate obtained from the viscosity measurements are in agreement with the results obtained from ultrasonic measurements. The results show that the soap molecules do not aggregate appreciably below CMC; there is a marked change in the aggregation behaviour at CMC.

Ultraschall- und Viskositätsmessungen an Samariumlaurat in Benzol-DMSO-Mischungen


Mit Hilfe von Ultraschall- und Viskositätsmessungen an Samariumlaurat in Benzol-DMSO — Mischungen verschiedener Zusammensetzung (7:3 und 1:1 v/v) wurden die kritische Micellenkonzentration (CMC), Seife-Lösungsmittel-Wechselwirkungen und verschiedene akustische Parameter des Systems bestimmt. Die Werte für die kritische Micellenkonzentration steigen mit wachsendem Anteil vonDMSO im Lösungsmittelgemisch. Die Érgebnisse der Viskositätsmessungen werden auf der Basis der Gleichungen vonEinstein,Vand,Moulik undJones-Dole erklärt. Die CMC-Werte für Samariumlaurat aus Viskositäts- und Ultraschallmessungen stimmen überein. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, daß die Seifenmoleküle bei Konzentrationen unter CMC nicht stark aggregieren; bei Erreichen des CMC-Werts tritt eine ausgeprägte Änderung im Aggregationsverhalten ein.
