The work includes the determination of relationships of the solubilization process of biodegradable hyperbranched polyester polyols Boltorn Hx of second, third and fourth generation by nonionic surfactants (TX-100, Brij-35, Tween-20). The impact of hyperbranched polyester polyols in binary systems Boltorn Hx/surfactant on surface-active properties of surfactants, dimensions of assemblies and solubilization capacity has been estimated with respect to Orange OT dye. It has been shown that solubilization capacity rises by an order of magnitude in binary system Boltorn Hx/TX-100 and decreases in binary system Boltorn Hx/Tween-20.
