Carbon dioxide-in-water microemulsions.

Abstract

Liquid and supercritical carbon dioxide swell potassium carboxylate perfluoropolyether (PFPE-K) cylindrical micelles in water to produce novel CO(2)-in-water (C/W) microemulsions. The swelling elongates the micelles significantly from 20 to 80 nm as the molar ratio of CO(2) in the micelles to surfactant (R(CO2)) reaches approximately 8. As the micelles… (More)
