27_07/1988The cover illustration shows the irridescent color effects that can be produced by the scattering of white light by one percent surfactant solutions. The colors observed depend on the scattering angle. The interference colors which are also to be observed are the result of ordered micellar structures with an extension which lies in the range of wavelengths of visible light. Similar effects have recently been described by N. Satoh and K. Tsujii (J. Phys. Chem. 91 (1987) 6629). Further details of the often amazing properties of surfactant solutions are reported by H. Hoffmann and G. Ebert on pages 902ff.
