In the past decade rapid advances have been made toward the elucidation of the kinetics of micelle formation [1,2]. The micellar processes which occur are relatively fast (half-lives less than one second) and must therefore be studied using special techniques, such as temperature-jump, pressure-jump or ultrasonic absorption methods. In the time ränge extending from 1/109 seconds to 1 second, two or three relaxations have been observed. Several processes have been postulated to account for the relaxations.
