    • Abstract


      We report on the physical properties of swollen solutions of the amphiphilic molecules of cetylpyridinium chloride and hexanol in brine. A remarkable characteristic of this system is the existence of a crossover between dilute and less dilute solutions, in the lamellar phase and the sponge phase, with some interesting consequences for the theory of membranes.
