We report a detailed analysis of the static and dynamic structure factor of polymerlike lecithin reverse micelles. We previously demonstrated that one can directly apply the results from conformation space renormalization group theory for semi-dilute polymer solutions to " equilibrium polymers " such as worm-like micelles or microemulsions, if one takes into account the fact that their size distribution is concentration dependent [1]. The present study confirms these findings and shows that this approach can be extended to the Q- and c-dependence of the static ( S(Q)) and dynamic ( S(Qt)) structure factor.
