Abstract

Self-assembly of surfactants in a supercritical solvent and micellar solubilization was studied using Monte Carlo simulation on a modified version of Larson's lattice model. Carbon dioxide and perfluoroalkylpoly(ethylene oxide) were used as prototypes for the solvent and surfactant, respectively. The ability of the surfactant solutions to dissolve more solute than solutions without surfactants was also discussed by calculating the partition coefficient.
