Emulsion Catastrophic Inversion from Abnormal to Normal Morphology. 3. Conditions for Triggering the Dynamic Inversion and Application to Industrial Processes
2003 (English)In: Industrial & Engineering Chemistry Research, Vol. 42, no 19, 4311-4318 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The catastrophic emulsion inversion from abnormal to normal morphol. is produced in different conditions, as far as the exptl. protocol is concerned. Far from optimum formulation, the inversion is found to take place when the fraction of the dispersed phase, which may be a single phase or an inner emulsion of a multiple emulsion, reaches a crit. packing value. Near optimum formulation, a so-called low-tension streaming-bicontinuity regime is found to happen instead of an emulsion morphol. The phenomenol. is used to interpret the emulsification of viscous oil phases in industrial processes. [on SciFinder (R)]
