Variation of the partition coefficient of cyclohexylacetate (CA) was studied by a differential absorption spectroscopic method as a function of ethanol and (CTAB) cetyltrimethylammoniumbromide concentrations. Approach used was based upon the pseudo-two phase model, including effect of ethanol concentrations on the critical micelle concentration (CMC) of CTAB. Ethanol enhanced micelle formation of CTAB at concentrations below 1% by volume, had a slight inhibitory effect at higher concentrations and totally inhibited at a concentration above 15% by volume.
