Micelles as media for chemical reactions exhibit features that are unique in comparison to ordinary non-aqueous or aqueous solvent media. A thermal or photochemical reaction conducted in micellar media is influenced by the micellar environmental effects resulting in control and/or modification of reactivity. The salient features of micelles and their influence on photochemical reactivity are briefly discussed in this paper.
