Abstract: The critical micelle concentration (CMC) values of three sets. of fortysix nonionic surfactants with oxyethylene groups as the hydrophilic group have been subjected to quantitative structure-property relationships (QSPR) studies. The hydrophobic groups have varied number of carbon atoms with linear, octyl phenol and branched alkyl chain derivatives. Molecular descriptors derived from the chemical graphs have been used for the studies. A general regression model has been proposed to predict the CMC of non ionic surfactants. Plots related to principal components of molecular descriptors resulted in the ordination of non ionic surfactants.
