Nanoparticle diffusion probing of the structure of water and aqueous organic solutions near a porous surface and in its bulk in a wide temperature interval

Scattering of laser radiation by nanoparticles (latex balls and silver nanoparticles) is investigated in a wide temperature interval. It is demonstrated that water is structured near the porous surface of a solid body and acquires low-dimension topology coinciding with the fractal dimension of the porous surface. A correlation is established between variations in the nanoparticle diffusion coefficient and the dielectric properties of aqueous organic solutions with an organic component in the mixture.
