Micelle Formation, Relaxation Time, and Three-Phase Coexistence in a Microemulsion Model
Physics and Astronomy
Our Larson‐type microemulsion model for surfactant chains in oil–water solvents leads to long relaxation times as well as, for essential modifications, to a stable peak in the chain‐cluster size distribution. Transfer energies for surfactant chains moving to the oil–water interface, and characteristicmicelle concentrations (CMC) as a function of chain length are compared with experiment.
