High internal phase water-in-oil emulsions and related microemulsions studied by small angle neutron scattering. 2. The distribution of surfactant

Reynolds, Philip; Gilbert, Elliot P; White, John


We have examined isotopically substituted concentrated emulsions and related microemulsions by small angle neutron scattering (SANS). The emulsions have 90% internal phase micron-scale water droplets in a continuous hexadecane microemulsion. The surfactants have polyisobutylene oligomer tails with acid-amide headgroups. Dilution experiments with surfactant concentration varying over a 75-fold range confirm that the oil phase component of the emulsion contains reverse spherical micelles. We have...[Show more]
