Cover Picture: Wetting of Surfactant Solutions by Alkanes (ChemPhysChem 3/2005)

6_03/2005The cover picture shows a cut-away section of an oil droplet on a surfactant solution, in which a lens of oil is in equilibrium with a mixed monolayer of surfactant and oil. The background is a Brewster angle micrograph of a drop of hexadecane on a 1.2 mm solution of dodecyltrimethylammonium bromide (DTAB), just above the wetting transition. In their article on page 547, Wilkinson et al. show that first-order wetting transitions in alkanes on surfactant solutions are a general, but not universal, phenomenon.
