Micelle

Aggregates in solution of amphiphilic compounds with an approximately spherical shape
When made of surfactants, fast exchange exists between the micelle and free compounds dissolved in the solution. When made of polymers, the micelle is often “frozen”, meaning that the exchange is very slow or null.
