Summary:
The effect of the hydrophobicity of organic compounds on their micelle-water partition coefficients was investigated. The micelle-water partition coefficients were obtained by UV/VIS spectroscopy and correlated with their octanol-water partition coefficients. The octanol-water partition coefficient of an organic compound is a measure of its hydrophobicity. Hydrophobicity alone did not influence the micelle-water partition coefficients. Further research is required to substantiate present findings and obtain additional related information.
