Micellization of sodium chenodeoxycholate (NaCDC) was studied for the critical micelle concentration (CMC), the micelle aggregation number, and the degree of counterion binding to micelle at 288.2, 298.2, 308.2, and 318.2 K. They were compared with those of three other unconjugated bile salts; sodium cholate (NaC), sodium deoxycholate (NaDC), and sodium ursodeoxycholate (NaUDC). The I(1)/I(3) ratio of pyrene fluorescence and the solubility dependence of solution pH were employed to determine… CONTINUE READING
