Abstract
Interactions between a polymer and a surfactant were studied via surface te nsion measurements. Poly(ethylene glycol) and sodium dodecyl sulfate were u sed as a polymer and a surfactant, respectively. The addition of polymer af fected the CMC value of the surfactant. The interpretations of the data and theoretical plots of polymer-surfactant interactions are discussed using a theoretical model.
