However, the relative contribution of the two effects is difficult to assess in a quantitative manner. 4 Micellization in surfactant mixtures (mixed micelles) In most industrial applications, more than one surfactant molecule is used in the formulation. It is, therefore, necessary to predict the types of possible interactions and whether these lead to some synergistic effects. Two general cases may be considered: surfactant molecules with no net interaction (with similar head groups) and systems with net interaction [1].
