Abstract

Mixtures of anionic and cationic surfactants in water display interesting phase behavior and a range of microstructures, including small micelles, rod-like micelles, lamellar phases and vesicles. This chapter reviews the properties of these mixtures with a focus on the experimental and theoretical aspects of vesicle formation and stability.
