Assessment of micro-polarity anisotropy as a function of surfactant packing in sodium dodecyl sulphonate-hexane reverse micelles

Soft Matter. 2016 Jan 7;12(1):22-5. doi: 10.1039/c5sm01950h.


The micro-polarity anisotropy behaviour across the aqueous phase of a SDS (sodium dodecyl sulphonate)-hexane reverse micelle (RM) relies on the SDS packing in the oil-water interfacial self-assembled surfactant structure of the RM.
