Left column: Predicted histograms for different values of intermicellar exchange rate keeping fixed concentration (〈c〉 = 64 metal ions in a micelle). Scheme color: blue (0–45 % of Au), gray (45–55 % of Au), red (55–100 % of Au). Less red means less Au (faster metal). Colored spheres in each histogram represent the averaged nanoparticle structure in concentric layers, keeping the same color scheme. Center column: Number of metal atoms obtained in micelles versus time. Continuous and discontinuous lines show the obtaining of Au and Pt, respectively. Right column: Reaction rate versus time. Red and blue lines show the resulting Au and Pt, respectively. Curves delimiting blue areas shows the calculated Pt rate as vPt, calculated = 0.10 dnAu/dt
