Abstract

The average aggregation number of sodium alkyl sulfate micelles will be investigated as a function of the alkyl chain length. It will be shown that the balance between hydrophobic and electrostatic interactions of charged sulfate head groups determines the value of the aggregation number. A simple model which is based on the above assumptions and agrees nicely with our observations will be presented.
