Emulsion stabilization by native cellulose has been mainly hampered because of its insolubility in water. Chemical modification is normally needed to obtain water-soluble cellulose derivatives. These modified celluloses have been widely used for a range of applications by the food, cosmetic, pharmaceutic, paint and construction industries. In most cases, the modified celluloses are used as rheology modifiers thickeners or as emulsifying agents.
An emulsion is formed when two nonsoluble liquids e. When the agitation stops, if the drops coalesce and the two phases separate under gravity, the emulsion has been temporary. To form a stable emulsion, an emulsifying agent must be added to the system. Sometimes, the formation of an emulsion is the deliberate outcome of a manufacturing process. This is the case, for example, in the production of mayonnaise, where ground mustard seeds are normally added to act as an emulsifying agent.
Emulsion Formation and Stabilization by Biomolecules: The Leading Role of Cellulose
The interface connects the central large droplet and the surrounding small droplets tightly. The results also indicate the size of the central droplet, and the indistinct interface can be enlarged with increasing temperature and increasing stirring rate. Compared to resin, it is noted that the larger asphaltene molecules have stronger connection because of their stronger intermolecular force, larger IFV, and less IFT. In conclusion, the stability of water in heavy oil emulsion is mainly related to the large interfacial viscosity of the interface with much more heavy components such as asphaltene and resin compared to thin oil. Simultaneously, stable and viscous heavy oil emulsion was found during the thermal processes.
Wang, Xiuyu, and Vladimir Alvarado. The stability and morphology of crude-oil emulsions with and without suspended kaolinite or silica were investigated as functions of salinity. First, synthetic reservoir brine with 1, 10 and times dilution was emulsified with crude oils of commercial interest, at several water-oil ratios, on which salinity effect on emulsion stability was studied. Also, the emulsion was prepared by mixing this oil with times dilution dispersed with particles to investigate pH effect on emulsion stability. The clay zeta potential at different pH was measured to estimate the effect of particle charge on emulsion stability.
Stability of oil emulsions
An emulsion is a mixture of two or more liquids that are normally immiscible with each other. From a thermodynamic point of view, an emulsion is an unstable system, since there is a natural tendency for a liquid-liquid system to separate and reduce its interfacial energy. Emulsion stability is important in manyindustrial applications, including coatings, food products, agriculture formulations, personal care and petroleum.
Emulsions occur either as end products or during the processing of products in a huge range of areas including the food, agrochemical, pharmaceutical, paint and oil industries. Despite over one hundred years of research in the subject, however, a quantitative understanding of emulsions has been lacking. Modern Aspects of Emulsion Science presents a comprehensive description of both the scientific principles in the field and the very latest advances in research in this important area of surface and colloid science.
