One stabilizer, many emulsions

By Deanna Utroske

Researchers have created a particle emulsifier that can stabilize both oil-in-water emulsions and water-in-oil emulsions. The work suggests the possibility of a truly universal particle-based emulsifier and that similarly effective particles can now be...

The four resulting shapes generated by the research were made by variations in factors such as the speed of impact, temperature of the fluids, and the density of the liquid bath the particles were dropped in. (Credit: OIST)
