Critical nucleus size effects on nanoparticle formation in microemulsions: a comparison study between experimental and simulation results


, : Critical nucleus size effects on nanoparticle formation in microemulsions: a comparison study between experimental and simulation results. Journal of Colloid and Interface Science 296(2): 591-598

Monte Carlo simulations were performed to study the influence of critical nucleus size on nanoparticle formation in microemulsions. It was found that critical nucleus size strongly affected nucleation and growth rates, as well as final nanoparticle sizes. An increase of critical nucleus leads to a slower nucleation process. In contrast, it gives rise to acceleration of the growth process. Final nanoparticle sizes increase as the critical nucleus value increases. It is predicted that this dependence will be less pronounced when a high reactant concentration is used. We have compared the simulation results with experimental data taken from different authors. Good agreement between the two kinds of results supports the conclusions of this paper.
