In this study, the mechanism on the phase behavior of polysorbate nonionic surfactants was investigated. In the ternary system containing water, hexanol as a polar oil and surfactant, the phase behaviors ranging from micellar region to occurrence of liquid crystal phase were observed by crossed microscope. As results, fine mosaic texture of liquid crystal phase and other phases were examined in the range of 20~70 wt%. This range if thought to give information about the basic data for the formulation of more stable emulsifying systems or dispersed systems. According to the alkyl chain length, three phase region diminished, whereas two phase range increased without an observation of the anisotropic liquid crystalline phase.
