Graphical Abstract:


Background: It is very important for understanding the turbulence drag-reducing mechanism and for improving product quality in the fields of pharmaceutical and chemical engineering to deeply investigate the rheological properties of surfactants solutions.

Methods: The rheological properties of Cationic surfactant (Cetyltrimethyl Ammonium Chloride)/Sodium salicylate were measured and analyzed with the MCR302 rheometer.

Results: The present results show that the shear viscosity of CTAC/NaSal solution with the exception of 0.9375mmol·L-1 can show the Newtonian characteristic, the shear-thickening, the shear-thinning and the stable shear properties with changing shear time. The induction time increases with a shear rate as a power law function relation tind=aγb.

Conclusion: The shear viscosity of the CTAC/NaSal solution can be divided into three regions with shear rate, and its flow curve conforms to a linear function in the logarithmic coordinate. When the concentration and the shear rate are relatively high, the viscosity curve of the CTAC/NaSal solution appears "platform" at the high temperature. When the shear rate is greater than 90s-1, the shear viscosity only appears shear thinning with increasing temperature.
