Interface-Templated Crystal Growth in Sodium Dodecyl Sulfate Solutions with NaCl

Abstract

Many ionic surfactants, such as sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS) crystallize out of solution if the temperature falls below the crystallization boundary. The crystallization temperature is impacted by solution properties and can be decreased with the addition of salt. We studied SDS crystallization at liquid/vapor interfaces from solutions at high ionic strength (sodium chloride). We show that the surfactant crystals at the surface grow from adsorbed SDS molecules, as evidenced by the preferential orientation of the crystals identified by using grazing incidence X-ray diffraction. We find a unique time scale for the crystal growth from the evolution of structure, surface tension, and visual inspection, which can be controlled through varying the SDS or NaCl concentrations
