A rigid microemulsion was prepared containing submicroscopic droplets of liquid aqueous tin tetrachloride solution. Recoillessγ-ray resonance absorption (the Mössbauer effect] was achieved in this system, indicating that the organic dispersion medium of the microemulsion behaved as a carrier, enhancing the Debye-Waller factor for the quasiliquid phase of the system. The Mössbauer spectra reflected the presence of two types of tin(IV) in the cavities of the microemulsion: SnCl4 species situated in the bulk solution and on the cavity wall, respectively.
