The solubilization of methylene blue in dodecylammonium propionate reversed micelles in cyclohexane depended strongly on the solubilized water content. Methylene blue solubilized in the micelle of which head groups are not completely hydrated by bound water exhibited the new absorption bands at 495 and 270 nm, but these bands did not appear in the micelle containing free water. This dye had the absorption bands at 655 and 290 nm in the latter micelle. The solubilizing process and solubilized state of methylene blue in the reversed micelles were discussed with results obtained.

Keywords: Methylene Blue; Reversed Micelles; Water Content; Solubilization
