Abstract : Critical micelle concentrations (CMC's) have been collected, organized and evaluated. The literature has been scanned for numerical values from 1926 up to and including 1966. In addition, over 800 values, hitherto available in graphical form or implied in experimental data, have been extracted from the publications and are included. Close to 5,000 entries, based on 333 references, dealing with 720 compounds are tabulated in the main tables. Whenever available, the temperature, any additives present, the method of determination and the literature source are given for each CMC value and an indication of the apparent quality of the preparation and method used are included. A shorter table gives selected values which are believed to be particularly reliable, including highly accurate ones. Among these, concordant values from at least two independent laboratories are emphasized. Included in the Introduction is a general discussion of the importance and significance of CMC values and of methods for their determination, as well as a summary of the procedures used in the collection, evaluation and presentation of these values in the present work. Extensive indexes are provided. (Author)
