Micellization is the precipitation of lipids from aqueous solution into aggregates with a broad distribution of aggregation number. Three eras of micellization are characterized in a simple kinetic model of Becker-D\"oring type. The model asigns the same constant energy to the $(k-1)$ monomer-monomer bonds in a linear chain of $k$ particles. The number of monomers decreases sharply and many clusters of small size are produced during the first era. During the second era, nucleii are increasingdoi:10.1103/physreve.66.061406 pmid:12513284 fatcat:ps3476tlkjbexb6ehi6fnolrka
