Abstract

Introduction

For many years scientists have tried to find a model which resembles a biological system, so that they can use this model for studying biological systems in human and in living organisms. Micelle systems provide the environment to mimic enzyme systems to some degree.1

Soaps and detergents generate micelles. Soaps and detergents have been used as cleansing agents for a long time. Their cleansing properties are related to micelle formation. Actually, soap is simply a mixture of sodium salts of long chain fatty acids, R-COO- Na+, and some detergents are general sodium salts of straight chain alkyl hydrogen sulfates.
