In this research work, the effect of solvent on the size of paltinum nanoparticles synthesized by microemulsion method was investigated. Platinum nanoparticles have been prepared by the reduction of H2PtCl6 with hydrazine in water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsions consisting of sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl) sulfo-succinate (AOT) and solvents n-hexane, cyclohexane and n-nonane. The size of the platinum nanoparticles was measured using transmission electron microscopy (TEM). It was verified that, for reduction of H2PtCl6 by hydrazine in microemulsion with different organic solvents, the solvents are arranged by their influence on nanoparticle sizes as follows: n-nonane > cyclohexane > n-hexane.
