Thermodynamic properties for aqueous solutions containing sodium pentane-1-sulfonate (C(5)SO(3)Na) in the absence and presence of poly(ethyleneglycol) (PEG) or poly(vinylpyrrolidone) (PVP) determined as a function of surfactant concentration from the density, sound velocity, viscosity, conductivity and vapor-liquid equilibria data, are reported...

Sonolysis of argon-saturated aqueous solutions of the nonvolatile surfactants sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) and sodium 1-pentanesulfonate (SPSo) was investigated at three ultrasonic frequencies under both continuous wave (CW) and pulsed ultrasound. Secondary carbon-centered radicals were detected by spin trapping using...
