The Free Energy of Solvation for N-Decane in Ethanol-Water Solutions

Posted on

material science journals impact factorRecent molecular simulations and force field development have indicated that computational methods can offer significant insight into the behavior of surfaces, polyethoxy and polysilicone systems, hydrogen bonding, solvent-water interactions, and alkane properties. Of particular interest are several studies which treat mixing thermodynamically, as well as those discussing the source of the hydrophobic effect. According to market evaluation firm Transparency Market Research, the “specialty surfactants industry is expected to reach USD 29.2 Billion Globally in 2017”. Furthermore, Transparency indicates that until at least that time nonionic surfactants, which are solubilized in alcohol co-solvated systems, are expected to be the fastest growing of all surfactant classes.
