The conductance of the non-aqueous solutions of magnesium soaps (caprylate, laurate, myristate and palmitate) was measured at different temperatures (30° to 45°C). The derived values (critical micellar concentration molar conductance at infinite dilution, degree of dissociation, dissociation constant and free energy change for dissociation and micellization process) showed that (i) magnesium soaps behave as weak electrolytes in 60 : 40 chloroformpropylene glycol mixture below the critical micellar concentration and (ii) micellization process is predominant over the dissociation process.
