The formation of self-organized assemblies by CnH2n+1NH2·HCl and C12H25SO4 Na in polar solvents was studied. By adding 1-propanol or 2-propanol, the precipitation formed in aqueous solution was resolved and a bilayer structure was discovered. Furthermore, multilamellar vesicle formation could be observed by methods of adjusting the molar ratio of CnH2n+1NH2·HCl to C12H25SO4Na, changing the length of the hydrocarbon chain of CnH2n+1NH2·HCl, or adding 1-octanol to the mixed surfactant systems.
