Simulations for the electrical percolation of AOT/iC8/H2O W/o microemulsions added with alkylamines have been carried out by means of multilayer perceptron. Five variables have been elected as inputs: Amine concentration, molecular weight, log P, hydrocarbon chain length (as number of carbons), and pKa. As a result, a neural model consisting in five input neurons, two middle layers (with fifteen and ten neurons respectively) and one output neuron was chosen because of its better performance, with a RMSE of 0.54°C for the prediction set, with R2= 0.9976.
