Neutron reflectivity has allowed the measurement at nanometric resolution of the structures formed when high internal phase water/oil emulsions are in contact with hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces prepared at planar faces of silicon blocks. The emulsion was a dispersion of micrometer sized droplets of saltwater-in-hexadecane. Contrast variation by selective deuteration of different components of the emulsion shows that at nanometric resolution an oil-rich phase is produced at the...[Show more]
