micelle


- an aggregate of surfactant molecules that forms when the surfactant is present at a concentration at or above its CMC. Micelles form in order to make the surfactant more stable in solution. In water, micelles form such that the ouside of the micelle is hydrophilic and the inside is hydrophobic. This arrangement allows the surfactant to remain in solution at higher concentrations
than would be otherwise possible.
