Introduction: Micelle

Description of Micelle

Micelle: aggregate of lipids in which the polar head groups face outward and the hydrophobic tails face inward.
Source: CRISP

Micelle: Particles consisting of aggregates of molecules held loosely together by secondary bonds. The surface of micelles are usually comprised of amphiphatic compounds that are oriented in a way that minimizes the energy of interaction between the micelle and its environment. Liquids that contain large numbers of suspended micelles are referred to as EMULSIONS.
