The effects of counterion binding on micellar catalysis of the base hydrolysis of FE(phen) has been investaged. Pseudo first order rate constant, k , incrases with increase in the concentrations of ME NCI and (But) NC1 at any fixed Sodium dodecyl sulphate (SDS) concentration while the reserve is the case with NH CL. Low pre-c.m.c. association constants, Km coupled with the observed low values of the number of monomers per aggregate, m gave an indication that the micellization of Sodium dodecyl sulphate is hindered in the presence of quaternary ammonium salts.
