Abstract: The phase and rheological behaviors of the polymerizable surfactant, cetyltrimethylammonium benzoate (CTAVB), and water as a function of surfactant concentration and temperature are investigated here. The critical micelle concentration (cmc) and the (cmc2), as well as the Krafft temperature (TK), are reported. A large highly viscous micellar solution region and hexagonal- and lamellar-phase regions were identified. The micellar solutions exhibit shear thickening in the dilute regime, below the overlapping or entanglement concentration. At higher concentrations, wormlike micelles form and the solutions show strong viscoelasticity and Maxwell behavior in the linear regime and shear banding flow in the nonlinear regime. The linear viscoelastic regime is analyzed with the Granek-Cates model, showing that the relaxation is controlled by the kinetics of reformation and scission of the micelles. The steady and unsteady responses in the nonlinear regime are compared with the predictions of the Bautista-Manero-Puig (BMP) model. Model predictions follow the experimental data closely. © 2006 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
