[Terminology] Solubilization

In system, because of presence of surfactants, solubility of the solute which is insoluble or slightly soluble in solvent is significantly improved effect.

Typical solvent is water; typical solute is organic compound.

Only when surfactant’s concentration is greater than critical micelle concentration, solubilization will obviously show.

Different from emulsion system, solubilization system is thermodynamically stable.
