Solubilization Kinetics of Soluble Oils by an Ionic Surfactant
Previously available data on solubilization kinetics of two oils in a micellar solution of sodium dodecyl sulfate, have been plotted with the data for one more oil provided here. These rates show that they reach saturation values with increasing micellar concentrations. These saturation values are then shown to be linearly dependent on the solubilities of oil, in keeping with the theory that the mechanism for solubilization of soluble oils by an ionic surfactant is chiefly molecular dissolution of the oil followed by a quick uptake by the micelles.
