Abstract

The aromatic moiety of calcium alkarylsulfonates was used as an intrinsic fluorescence probe to follow the behavior of inverted micelles formed by this general type of materials in hydrocarbon media. The rotational relaxation times of the intrinsic probe in different systems were determined from anisotropy decays obtained with a single photon counting system using a UV excitation source at 295 nm, generated by a Spectra-Physics Model 375 synchronously-pumped, cavity-dumped dye laser system coupled with an INRAD frequency doubler. They provide information on the rigidity of sulfonate molecules adsorbed on the surface of basic inorganic materials that are components of the polar core of the inverted micelles.
