Abstract

Solubilization rates of fatty acids in pure detergent solutions are controlled by mixed micelle desorption and diffusion. Solubilization rates in partially saturated detergent solutions also involve exchange of fatty acids between the solid and the solution. These conclusions depend on models like those used in gas‐solid catalysis and in tracer diffusion.
