Abstract
A narrow, reversible endothermic main transition is found in the aqueous micellar phase of octaethylene glycol tetradecyl ether (C14E8) by DSC, characterized by a transition temperature of 41°C and a ΔH value of 0.5 kcal mol−1, which is not observed by light scattering. This transition is assigned to a cooperative conformational rearrangement of the assembled amphiphilic detergent molecules and not to a micelle aggregation process. It is suggested that the detergent’s polar head group is primarily involved in this rearrangement.
