Polydisperse oligo(PO-b-EO) allyl ether siloxane surfactants, Surface tension, Surface arrangement, Hydrolysis, Cp values
Polydisperse oligo(PO-b-EO) allyl ether siloxane surfactants were synthesized by the hydrosilylation reaction of OMTS with Allyl-oligo(PO-b-EO) series. The surface tension of siloxane surfactants increased with increasing the EO chain length while it decreased with increasing the PO ratio. However, the sedimentation time of the aqueous solution showed opposite trend to the surface tension data. Both the surface tension and sedimentation time of the aqueous solution containing inorganic electrolyte gradually decreased as the content of inorganic electrolyte increased because of the surface arrangement of surfactant molecules. However, they increased with an increase of pH values due to the hydrolysis of the siloxane backbone. The Cp values tended to increase with the increase in the EO chain length and decrease of the PO ratio. It seems that intermolecular interaction between PO/EO block copolymer and water affects the variation of transition temperature.
