Abstract: We report the effect of different geometrical restrictions on the dynamical properties of water using dynamic light scattering (DLS), Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) and picosecond-resolved fluorescence studies. By preparing AOT/lecithin mixed reverse micelles (RMs) of different morphologies (spherical and ellipsoidal), we have investigated the effect of the degree of confinement on the mobility of water in the mixed RMs of similar degree of hydration. The FTIR studies along with solvation dynamics of two fluorescent probes, ANS and coumarin 500 in the RMs reveal structural and dynamical information about the micellar water, which varies with the morphology of the mixed RMs.
