The main purpose of the ultrasonic absorption studies of micro-emulsions reported in this paper, as well as in a previous one(1) (referred to as Part I in the following) was to reach a better understanding of the dynamic properties of microemulsions. Indeed, it has been put forward(2) that these properties may play an important role in determining the stability of microemulsions.
