N-Alkylamines-Based Micelles Aggregation Number Determination by Fluorescence Techniques

Abstract

Aggregation numbers of micelles based on N-alkylamines and mixed systems CTACl/N-alkylamines have been determined using fluorescence techniques. The values of aggregation number are compared as a function of hydrocarbon chain length and as a function of the molar fraction in the mixed systems.
