In this work, Taylor dispersion analysis was applied to the measurement of micelles (or microdroplets) molecular diffusion coefficient in micellar (or microemulsion) systems based on neutral/anionic/cationic or zwitterionic surfactants. The choice of the micellar marker and the influence the surfactant/marker...

Time-resolved emission techniques were employed to study the nonradiative process of thioflavin-T (ThT) in 1-propanol, 1-butanol, and 1-pentanol as a function of the hydrostatic pressure. Elevated hydrostatic pressure increases the alcohol viscosity, which in turn strongly influences the nonradiative rate...
