Soluble amphiphiles are present, in water solutions, in two physical forms: free monomers or micelles (1). Micellization occurs at a certain, under given conditions fixed, concentration, called the critical micellar concentration (CMC). Under the CMC, the amphiphile is pres ent as a monomer; over the CMC, the concentration of the monomer remains constant and the excess molecules aggre gate to form micelles.
