It should be amply evident from the accounts of Chapters 1–5 that assisted by well-established basic observations, various investigators have utilized both macro-and microemulsion processes for the synthesis of a large variety of inorganic substances in particulate form. The activity is more pronounced in case of microemulsion-mediated synthesis for the obvious reasons that (i) the method yields nanoparticles of many useful substances for special applications and (ii) in addition to the spherical shape that comes generally from the spherical droplet phase of microemulsions, other shapes like nanorods and nanowires can be produced by this method in specific cases. Both the methods, however, have their own advantages and limitations, and products of both the processes have been demonstrated to have potentials for application. The following text discusses some of these points.
