In this study, polymers of sodium 10-undecenoyl L-leucinate (SUL) and sodium undecenyl sulfate (SUS) as well as their copolymerized molecular micelles (CoPMMs) were applied in MEKC as pseudostationary phases to separate benzodiazepines and alkyl phenyl ketones. SDS, a common pseudostationary phase used in MEKC, was also used for comparison. The van't Hoff relationship was applied to compute the temperature dependence of the MEKC retention factors of the test solutes to estimate the enthalpy, entropy, and the Gibbs free energy. Nonlinear van't Hoff plots were obtained with the majority of benzodiazepines indicating that the thermodynamic parameters were temperature-dependent in all surfactant systems for these solutes. In contrast, all alkyl phenyl ketones resulted in linear van't Hoff plots. © 2007 Wiley-VCH Verlag GmbH and KGaA, Weinheim.
