The addition of silica, zinc oxide, and iron oxide nanoparticles into wormlike micellar solution of cetylmethylammonium bromide (CTAB) and sodium nitrate is studied using the surface properties and viscosity to for analysis of its properties. The scope of analysis was narrowed down through analyzing the nanoparticle component and wormlike micelle component is done by focusing the similar properties of both components Since a lot of other properties can be analyzed with their respective method,. The recent approach developed by Langmuir (2008) appear to show the influence of nanoparticle addition on the properties of wormlike micelle solution by using silica nanoparticle with CTAB-sodium nitrate solution which enhance the WLM network viscoelasticity and lead to a substantial retardation of the nanoparticle mobility. The WLM is said to be unstable when it is mix with crude oil due to its surface properties. C. Wöll (2007) proved that surface properties of nanoparticle is hydrophilic. Hydrophilic exhibit water loving characteristic which is attract to the water. This project is to study the interaction between nanoparticles, WLM and crude oil and this part will be explain in the literature review chapter. This project will use laboratory work, or experimental approach.
