Small-angle scattering techniques are used in conjunction with dynamic studies of collision processes to investigate the mechanism of droplet aggregation in AOT-stabilised water-in-oil microemulsions. The presence of 'almost dry' reversed micelles co-existing with the water droplets is postulated to explain the scattering and kinetics data. The equilibrium droplet distribution function is shown to be dependent on the dynamic processes occurring in the microemulsion. © 1986.
