Abstract:

According to the character of bending of lamellar structure under ultrasonication, vesicles were prepared from the lamellar liquid crystal in the Triton X 100/n C10H21OH/H2O system. The results show that: the size distribution of vesicle prepared is between 0.2 μm and 0.5 μm. The Zeta potential and micropolarity of vesicles prepared were determined, the effects of pH on Zeta potential and ultrasonication time on micropolarity were also performed.

Key words: Triton X-100, Lamellar liquid crystal, Vesicle, Zeta-potential, Micropolarity
