Abstract: There are many possible size enhancement processes that affect the formation of nanoparticles in reverse micelles, such as coagulation and Ostwald ripening, and different physical systems are likely to follow one or more of these mechanisms depending upon the properties of the system. It has been suggested that silver halide particles, prepared from a reverse nucellar system of AgNO(3) and KCI in NP-6/cyclohexane solution, increase in size due to Ostwald ripening (Kimijima, K.; Sugimoto, T. J. Phys. Chem. B 2004, 108, 3735), which occurs due to the dependence of the solubility of the particles on the particle size so that the larger particles grow at the expense of smaller particles. This study provides a modeling framework to quantitatively analyze the ripening process of nanoparticles produced in reverse micellar systems.
