Abstract

In this work we study the tertiary structure of ionic and surfactant when the pH in the system is modified using electrostatic dissipative particle dynamics simulations (DPD). The dependence with pH and kind of surfactant is presented. Our simulations reproduce the experimental behavior reported in the literature. The scaling for the radius of gyration with the size of the molecule as a function of pH is also obtained.
