Droplet coalescence and clustering behavior in microsphere-filled polymeric emulsions under shear flow: the key role of asymmetric interfacial affinities.


The flow-induced spatial organization of the droplet phase in ternary polymeric emulsions consisting of two Newtonian fluids, namely polyisobutylene (PIB) and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), in the presence of a small amount of solid polystyrene (PS) microspheres are explored by direct flow visualization. The results suggest that the asymmetric affinities of… (More)
