Abstract

The influence of inorganic salts, commonly used as buffer system, on the micellisation of Poloxamer 407 was analyzed through the combination of three different analytical techniques, such as microcalorimetry, ultrasonic spectroscopy and dynamic light scattering. The general results are in agreement with the Hofmeister series behaviour confirming data found in the literature. However, the simultaneous use of different methodologies allowed a deeper understanding of the micellisation process clarifying the role of ions on the dynamic of the process itself. The self-aggregation phenomenon is mainly driven by the water–poloxamer and water–water interactions. Ions play a crucial role by modifying these interactions and consequently the general order of the systems, entropically promoting the micellisation process.
