Ternary solutions containing one hydrotrope (such as ethanol) and two immiscible fluids, both being soluble in the hydrotrope at any proportion, show unexpected solubilization power and allow strange but yet unexplained membrane enzyme activity. We study the system ethanol-water-octanol as a simple model of such kinds of ternary solutions. The stability of “detergentless” micelles or ...
