- Formation of Fe clusters in inverse micelles was studied. Iron salts are solubilized within the polar interior of inverse micelles, and addition of LiBH₄ initiates reduction to produce monodisperse, nanometer-sized Fe based particles. The reaction sequence is sustained by material exchange between inverse micelles. Surfactant interface provides a spatial constraint on reaction volume, and reactions carried out in these micro-heterogeneous solutions produce colloidal sized particles (10--100 Å) stabilized in solution against flocculation by surfactant. In this paper, the clusters were characterized using TEM, Moessbauer spectroscopy, electron diffraction, and x-ray photoelectron spectroscopy.
