Synthesis of nanomaterials with desired shape and size is very important for their potential
applications. The properties of the nanoparticles synthesis not only vary with size but also changes
with shape and morphology which in turn depends on the synthesis methods. There are many synthesis
methods but among them reverse micellar method is one of the interesting chemical method and
is very useful technique for the synthesis of nanoparticles with desired shape and size. In this method
revere micelles are formed by least three components; two of them are non-miscible and the third
one is called surfactant which is characterized by amphiphilic properties.
Keywords: Reverse micelle, surfactants, bottom up, nanoparticle synthesis, hydoplillic, CMC.
