Micelle Formation, Relaxation Time, and Three-Phase Coexistence in a Microemulsion Model
Physics and Astronomy
Mathematics and Natural Sciences
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.
