Abstract: Popular Science Description Surfactants are compounds broadly used in daily life products as cosmetics, soaps or detergents. A better understanding of the processes occurring at a molecular scale leads to an improvement of their applications. The following work presents a 13C NMR procedure that allows to study the dynamics of these systems: an important insight into the motional mechanisms is hence obtained thorugh common experimental analysis.
