Abstract

Using the fluorescence properties of several naphthalene derivatives in the presence and absence of quenchers, it was possible to characterize DAP- and AOT-micelles in cyclohexane. Based on simple fluorescence lifetime measurements, it is proposed that the aggregation mechanisms for both systems are identical. The meaning of the CMC is also discussed. The use of fluorescence quenching to obtain information on e.g. the mean aggregation number and on the solubilizate exchange between colliding micelles is discussed.

In all cases, the total quencher concentration, and not the quencher concentration in the waterpool, must be used. Exciplex formation with triethylamine and energy transfer to Tb3+, proved to be very good methods to localize the solubilized probes in the reverse micellar system.
