The higher critical micelle concentration causes lower oil production, when critical concentration is too much low, it causes rapid oil production.

14) At concentrations significantly higher than the critical micelle concentration, there is a possibility that amphipathic arborols would form gels by hydrophobic association and, if they did, the gels might be expected to have a more uniform pore size than conventional polymer gels.
Most of them are able to reduce the pattern collapse at concentrations near or above the critical micelle concentration (cmc) (e.
The critical micelle concentration (CMC) is the concentration of surfactant in solution that must be reached for micelles to begin to form.
The critical micelle concentration (CMC) was determined as the lowest concentration of HA needed to produce maximal effect on the surface tension in distilled water.
