Control of the size of silver sulphide semiconductor particles in functionalized reverse micelles was achieved by changing the water content and intermicellar interactions. Opposite to what it is generally observed in reverse micelles, the size of the crystallites varies linearly with water content from 2 to 10 nm. By changing the intermicellar potential, the size distribution slightly decreases and the stability of the particles with time increases.
