A new method, based on EPR, to study the bimolecular collision rate between additives at the surface of micelles was developed. In order to study the collision rate in these compartmentalized systems, a detailed understanding of the number distribution function of the additives is crucial. A completely random distribution of the additives is described by the Poisson distribution. A primary goal of this project was to develop a method to measure the collision rate between additives on the same micelle. This is accomplished by deducing the collision-induced linewidth broadening of the ESR spectrum.
