The investigation of the micellization of star-block copolymers using a Brownian dynamics simulation was presented. It was observed that when the cmc was plotted against the arm number, the critical micelle concentration was the least. It was also observed that the star-block copolymer with longer soluble block showed the minimum cmc at smaller arm number. It was shown that the average aggregation number was inversely propotionate to the arm number, which implied that the micelle size was invariant with the arm number.
