Abstract

We have studied water-in-oil microemulsions formed by the threecomponent system, aerosol-OT (AOT), water, and heptane. Aerosol-OT is the sodium salt of a dialkylsulphosuccinate and has been much used in the study of the properties of microemulsions since no co-surfactant is required. The main emphasis of our work is on kinetic studies in micro-emulsions, but in connection with these measurements it is essential to obtain as much information as possible concerning the detailed structure of the microemulsions. To this end, we have recently performed some small-angle neutron scattering (SANS) experiments using the facilities available at Harwell and Grenoble.
