Origin of the scattering peak in microemulsions
From a Landau theory the static scattering intensity distribution I(q) of microemulsions is obtained. As essential ingredient we have included a negative gradient term in the free energy expression.Expand

Microemulsion microstructure and interfacial curvature
The typical phase behavior of microemulsion systems undergoing phase inversion is briefly reviewed. As a model system H2O-n-octane-C12E5 is studied with various experimental techniques. The occurringExpand

Homogeneous Nucleation of H2O and D2O in Comparison: The Isotope Effect†
In the past century, the homogeneous nucleation of light water (H2O) has repeatedly been studied using various experimental techniques. Generally, the onset of nucleation was recorded, while lessExpand

Ultralow interfacial tensions in water–n-alkane–surfactant systems
The interfacial tensions between water- and oil-rich phases in the presence of microemulsions have been measured for ternary systems of water, n-alkanes, and nonionic alkylpolyglycolether surfactantsExpand

Phase Behavior of Ternary Systems of the Type H2O ? Oil ? Nonionic Amphiphile (Microemulsions)
Liquid multicomponent systems of the type H2O-oil-amphiphile-electrolyte are of growing interest, both in industry and in research. In applications technology, there are two problems to solve: 1. ToExpand

Freezing water in no-man's land.
We report homogeneous ice nucleation rates between 202 K and 215 K, thereby reducing the measurement gap that previously existed between 203 K and 228 K. These temperatures are significantly belowExpand

Empirical function for homogeneous water nucleation rates
Very recently, Wolk and Strey [J. Phys. Chem. B 105, 11683 (2001)] presented empirical temperature correction functions for calculating homogeneous nucleation rates J of H2O and D2O (1<J/cm−3Expand
