1988). These considerations raise the question of whether the carboxyl group of RA is protonated or negatively charged at physiological pH, and whether the self-association characteristics of RA affect the compound's ionization state. These questions were examined in a study that utilized the large spectral shift of the absorption maximum of RA upon protonation of the carboxyl end group to monitor the ionization behavior of RA in water (Noy 1992a). The concentration dependence of the pK of RA indicated that the CMC of this retinoid is lower than 111M.
