Abstract of the talk by Julia Robbert:

Correlation of Interfacial Elasticity and Emulsion Stability


Emulsions are essential for the personal care sector. Their stability, an important factor for formulators, is mainly influenced by aggregation with subsequent coalescence of the droplets. To reduce the tendency to coalesce, and thus increase emulsion stability, highly elastic interfaces have proven useful. To create these, block copolymers or mixtures of surfactants with high and low HLB values are used in practice. The "oscillating drop" method can be used to experimentally determine the interfacial elasticity and thus better understand the formation of such interfaces and the influence of different surfactants. Due to recent advancements of the experimental methodology, these measured values are now much faster, easier, and more readily accessible than was the case just a few years ago. The basics of the measurement method, as well as the latest available measurement equipment, will be presented first-hand by the manufacturer.
