The aqueous microemulsion systems are by now fairly well described[1.2]: they have attracted a considerable attention due to the wave of interest in the tertiary oil recovery[3–5]. The phase behavior of the microemulsion systems have been related to the phases found in the well known Ekwall systems of water, surfactant and amphiphile[6] an approach that gave simple rules for the preparation of microemulsions[7.8]. A later systematics developed by the French school[9] made possible a treatment of multi-component systems using a less number of variables.
