Raman spectroscopy has been used in order to study the aggregation processes, that involve SDS above the critical micellar concentration and as a consequence of the addition of macrocyclic molecules such as 18C6 and K222. The aggregation of micelles produces changes of the wavenumbers and intensities of the Raman bands of the micelle, the ligand and the hydration layer.
