The structural features of water-in-oil microemulsions of Triton X-100, 1-hexanol, and water in cyclohexane have been studied by NMR relaxation and ESR spin probe methods. The mobility of the water molecules, the extent of hydration of the surfactant, and the mobility of the poly(oxyethylene) segment and the nonpolar segment of the amphiphile have been monitored and analyzed in terms of the molecular processes occurring in the microemulsion system. Comparison of these results with those on simple reverse micelles in nonpolar media indicates considerable similarities between water-in-oil microemulsions and reverse micelles.
