General description

Mixed monolayers of 1-octadecanol and ethylene glycol monooctadecyl ether were studied to investigate their evaporation suppressing performance. The rate dependence of the collapse pressure for an octadecanolmonolayer using axisymmetric drop shape analysis has been investigated.

Application

1-Octadecanol has been used as surfactant for the functionalization of carbon nanotubes.

Packaging

Mixed monolayers of 1-octadecanol (C18OH) and ethylene glycol monooctadecyl ether (C18E1) were studied to assess their evaporation suppressing performance. An unexpected increase in performance and stability was found around the 0.5:0.5 bicomponent mixture and has been ascribed to a synergistic...
