Abstract

We calculate the surface energy of a micelle consisting of neutral and ionized dodecyldimethylamine oxides (DAOs) by Monte Carlo simulation based on a lattice model of the micelle. We obtain the dependence of the surface energy on the fraction, αM, of ionized DDAO and show that the hydrogen bond between DDAOs plays a significant role in determining the properties of micelles. In particular, a conclusion is drawn that a DDAO molecule supports two hydrogen bonds. We also discuss the effects of the coexisting salt and temperature.
