    • Contrasting effect of 1-butanol and 1,4-butanediol on the triggered micellar self-assemblies of $C_{16}-$type cationic surfactants 

      Kumar, Vinod; Verma, Rajni; Satodia, Dwarkesh; Ray, Debes; Kuperkar, Ketan C.; Aswal, Vinod K.; Mitchell-Koch, Katie R.; Bahadur, Pratap (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2021-08-09)
      The self-assembly in aqueous solutions of three quaternary salt-based $C_{16}$-type cationic surfactants with different polar head groups and identical carbon alkyl chain viz., cetylpyridinium bromide (CPB), cetyltrimethylammonium ...
    • Self-assembly and micellar transition in CTAB solutions triggered by 1-Octanol 

      Kumar, Vinod; Mitchell-Koch, Katie R.; Marapureddy, Sai Geetha; Verma, Rajni; Thareja, Prachi; Kuperkar, Ketan; Bahadur, Pratap (American Chemical Society, 2022-10-13)
      This study exploits higher-order micellar transition ranging from ellipsoidal to rodlike to wormlike induced by 1-octanol (C$_8$OH) in an aqueous solution of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), characterizing phase ...
    • Tuning cationic micelle properties with an antioxidant additive: A molecular perspective 

      Kumar, Vinod; Sai, Geetha M.; Verma, Rajni; Mitchell-Koch, Katie R.; Ray, Debes; Aswal, Vinod K.; Thareja, Prachi; Kuperkar, Ketan C.; Bahadur, Pratap (American Chemical Society, 2021-04-01)
      In this work, we characterize the micellization and morphology transition induced in aqueous cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) solution by the addition of the antioxidant propyl gallate (PG) using tensiometry, rheology, ...
