Steric fitting of the spherical micelle size

  • 77 Accesses

  • 22 Citations

Abstract

A model was developed to explain the size of spherical micelles on the basis of steric effects. Here the electrostatic repulsion within polar heads is considered as a steric effect. The predictions of this model concerning micelle size; water penetration into the hydrocarbon micelle core; and the dependence of the aggregation number on temperature, electrolyte addition, hydrocarbon chain length, head group size, and counterion size agreed quite well with literature data.
