Classically, partition coefficients are determined using octanol and water (Pow) to mimic movement of drugs through biological membranes. An alternative system is proposed using chromatography to determine micelle/water partition coeffi cients (Pmw) for pharmaceutical compounds. It is proposed that using a micellar system provides an interesting alternative to the traditional method that is experimentally faster, equally precise yet most importantly achieves a higher level of accuracy when attempting to correlate with an in vivo situation. This work initially focuses on four drugs with a comparative study between literature Pow and measured Pmw values, this is followed by a comparative study of column and surfactant selection.
