Perpendicular flow is used to induce oil droplet breakup by using a capillary as water phase flow channel. It is a new route to produce monodisperse emulsions. The wetting properties of the fluids on the walls are exceedingly important parameters. Depending on the oil and water flow rates, different spatial distributions of the two phases as laminar, plugs,(More)
This letter presents a simple way to prepare monodisperse O/W and W/O emulsions in the same T-junction microfluidic device just by changing the wetting properties of the microchannel wall with different surfactants. Highly uniform droplets ranging from 50 to 400 mum with a polydispersity index (sigma) value of less than 2% were successfully prepared. With(More)
Here we developed a simple and novel one-step approach to produce G/O/W emulsions with high gas volume fractions in a capillary microfluidic device. The thickness of the oil layer can be controlled easily by tuning the flow rates. We successfully used the G/O/W emulsions to prepared hollow microspheres with thin polymer shells.
This article presents a simple and novel approach to prepare monodispersed gas-in-oil-in-water (G/O/W) and gas-in-water-in-oil (G/W/O) double-emulsions in the same dual-coaxial microfluidic device. The effects of three phase flow rates on the sizes of microbubbles and droplets and the number of the encapsulated microbubbles were systematically studied. We(More)
Competitive binding between counterions around DNA molecule is characterized using the preferential interaction coefficient of individual ion in single and mixed electrolyte solutions. The canonical Monte Carlo (MC) simulation, nonlinear Poisson-Boltzmann (PB) equation, and density functional theory (DFT) proposed in our previous work [Wang, Yu, Gao, and(More)
A density-functional approach and canonical Monte Carlo simulations are presented for describing the ionic microscopic structure around the DNA molecule immersed in mixed-size counterion solutions. In the density-functional approach, the hard-sphere contribution to the Helmholtz energy functional is obtained from the modified fundamental measure theory(More)
This work describes a novel microfluidic method to prepare monodispersed chitosan microspheres by using the solvent extraction method. Our strategy is that a chitosan/acetic acid aqueous solution is emulsified in an organic phase containing the extractant by using the co-flowing shear method in a co-axial microfluidic device. The formed droplets are in situ(More)
Micrometer-sized monodispersed silica spheres (approximately 360 microm) with high loading of bovine serum albumin (BSA) (approximately 450 mg/g) were prepared as an adsorbent for large-scale chiral separation. The new adsorbent was characterized with scanning electron microscopy (SEM), nitrogen adsorption-desorption isotherms, the mercury intrusion method,(More)
This paper presents a novel in situ method to prepare monodispersed palladium nanoparticles supported on porous glass beads with an egg-shell structure at room temperature. This method integrates two processes of ion exchange and reduction in one step just by changing the solvent from water to alcohol. The monodispersed Pd nanoparticles around 3.75 nm in(More)
A novel microfluidic approach to measure interfacial tension of immiscible fluids rapidly is reported. This method rests upon quantitative force balance analysis of drop formation dynamics in a coaxial microfluidic device. The values of interfacial tension for several two liquids without/with surfactants are measured. These measurements compare well with(More)
