Molecular-Thermodynamic Approach to Predict Micellar Solution Properties

  • Daniel Blankschtein (a1) and Sudhakar Puvvada (a1)

In this paper we present a conceptual overview of our recently developed molecular-thermodynamic approach to predict micellization, thermodynamic properties, and phase separation of micellar solutions. A detailed exposition may be found in Ref..
