Title: Acetic acid uptake in the presence of a 1-octanol film?
Post by: dddawsonnn on December 08, 2012, 01:56:05 PM
In an experiment where the uptake of acetic acid vapour is measured, why is the uptake into water increased when a 1-octanol film is present at the liquid-gas interface? Why does a small chain surfactant like that make the surface more permeable? Any help would be great?
