AbstractA star-shaped tetrameric quaternary ammonium surfactant PATC, which has four hydrophobic chains and charged hydrophilic headgroups connected by amide-type spacer group, has been synthesized in this work. Surface tension, electrical conductivity, ITC, DLS, and NMR have been used to investigate the relationship between its chemical structure and its aggregation properties. Interestingly, a large size distribution around 75 run is observed below the critical micelle concentration (cmc) of PATC, and the large size distribution starts to decrease beyond the cmc and finally transfers to a small size distribution. It is proved that the large size premicellar aggregates may display network like structure, and the size decrease beyond the cmc is the transition of the network-like aggregates to micelles. The possible reason is that intramolecular electrostatic repulsion among the charged headgroups below the cmc leads to a star-shaped molecular configuration, which may form the network-like aggregates through intermolecular hydrophobic interaction between hydrocarbon chains, while the hydrophobic effect becomes strong enough to turn the molecular configuration into pyramid-like shape beyond the cmc, which make the transition of network-like aggregates to micelles available.
