The viscosity of aqueous micellar solutions of two long-chain surfactants, C24H43N2ClO and C21H38NCl, is studied in a concentration range of 10−4–10−2 mol/L and a temperature range of 20–40°C. It is established that, in the region of critical micelle concentration, the viscosity is a nonmonotonic function of concentration and has minima and maxima.
