This The present study was devoted to investigate the effect of addition of cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and lauryl alcohol (LA) on the formation of o/w microemulsions from almond- water system. Two techniques were used in this study, namely electrical conductivity and hydrodynamic viscosity, which revealed the enhanced micellization and solubilization of almond oil in water. This was indicated by the variations of critical micelle concentration, degree of micelle ionization, and thermodynamic parameters as a function of oil addition and temperature.

Keywords : Surfactant; Microemulsions;Almond Oil; Lauryl Alcohol; Emulsification; CMC; CTAB; Electrical Conductivity.
