Electrochemical behaviours on 1.0 mM methylviologen ($MV^{2+}$) in 100 mM NaCl+27 mM $MgCl_2$ solution, without and with sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), were studied. The intersection of two lines on ${\Delta}E_p$ (the difference between the anodic, $E_{pa}$, and the cathodic, $E_{pc}$, peak potentials) of the first and second redox waves vs. -log[SDS] plot was determined as a critical micelle concentration (CMC). When $Mg^{2+}$ was added, the effective access of $MV{\cdot}^+$ to the glassy carbon electrode surface became possible and the formation of micelles was retarded.
