The surface active phosphine ((C6H4))C3H6((C6H4)S03 N+)3 ,1, aggregates in aqueous solution to fonn micelles. Light scattering experiments were used to determine the hydrodynamic radius of the aggregates. Fluorescence, conductivity, and surface tension expeliments were used to measure the clitical micelle concentration of these aggregates. Fluorescence experiments, using a quencher and probe analysis, show the number of particles per aggregate. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) shows that these micelles are able to incorporate olefin within the hydrophobic region and are acting as phase transfer agents.
