We show that a model recently introduced to describe a microemulsion is capable of capturing most of the essential features observed experimentally. In particular our Monte Carlo results show the expected variation of the critical micelle concentration with length of surfactants, the formation of micelles, the accumulation of surfactants at an interface and also the variation of the demixing temperature with surfactant length.
