An elucidation of the interaction mechanism between small ions and ionic amphiphiles in lyotropic mesophases is of considerable chemical interest since biological membranes have been shown to have several properties in common with liquid crystals formed by ionic amphiphiles and water.1 Furthermore, it has been observed that phase equilibria2 and aggregate shapes2,3 depend markedly on the nature of the counter-ion in surfactant systems; and, therefore, a better understanding of the conditions for occurrence of different types of lyotropic mesophases may be expected by probing into the ion binding in solutions containing ionic amphiphiles. Additionally, studies of the ion binding in colloidal systems may prove valuable in connection with theoretical approaches to the ion binding in polyelectrolyte solutions.
