Critical micelle concentration (CMC), maximum surface excess concentration (?max), minimum area per molecule (Amin) at air-liquid interface of cetyl pyridinium chloride (CPC) in aqueous sodium chloride solutions have been, tensiometrically, determined at 288.15, 293.15 and 298.15 K. Thermodynamic parameters of micellization as well as of adsorption at air-liquid interface have been evaluated. Whereas micellization process is exothermic, adsorption of surfactant at the air-liquid interface is endothermic in nature. The latter process however becomes feasible owing to the predominant entropy gain.
