Abstract

The basic hydrolysis of crystal violet has been studied in w/o microemulsions of the CTAB/alkanols/cyclohexane system (alkanols: 1-butanol and 1-hexanol). The reaction can be considered to occur in the water phase of the droplets and from the rate constant the apparent dielectric constant of the water phase was determined. The cyclohexane incorporation in the system produces a decrease in the effective dielectric constant of the water phase and in the specific conductivity.
