Stephan Spencer asked:

 Could someone tell me what the CMC is for SDS? The buffer it is in is 150 
mM NaCl, 10 mM MgCl2. (pH 7.5, 25 C). What is a good reference text for this 
kind of information? 

The Calbiochem catalog has a very useful list of detergents and their 
properties.  It's on p. 106 of the 1994/1995 catalog.  The CMC of SDS is listed 
as 7-10 mM.
