TY  - JOUR
AB - A comparison of the kinetics of spreading of aqueous solutions of two different surfactants on an identical substrate and their short time adsorption kinetics at the water/air interface has shown that the surfactant which adsorbs slower provides a higher spreading rate. This observation indicates that Marangoni flow should be an important part of the spreading mechanism enabling surfactant solutions to spread much faster than pure liquids with comparable viscosities and surface tensions.
