STAROV, V., ZHDANOV, V. and KOVALCHUK, N.M., 2010. Kinetic models of micelles formation. Colloids and Surfaces A: Physicochemical and Engineering Aspects, 354 (1-3), pp.268-278
Four possible aggregation models in surfactant solutions are considered. It is shown that only the model taking into account interactions between clusters of sub-micellar size shows a transition to the micelles formation at a concentration above the CMC.
