Dr. Larry Romsted discusses his work with surfactants, association colloids, emulsions, and micellar growth.

Research in Dr. Romsted's group ranges across bioorganic, biophysical and association colloid chemistries. The ultimate goal is to develop a deeper understanding of the balance of forces that control the structure and compositions of aggregated systems such as micelles, microemulsions, vesicles, biological membranes and macroemulsions and the organization of aqueous polyelectrolyte solutions.
