The surface and hydrodynamic forces between individual oil droplets in solution can provide insight into both emulsion stability and processes such as drop coalescence in liquid-liquid extraction. We present the first measurements of the interaction forces between alkane droplets in aqueous solution using atomic force microscopy. The radii of the droplets were well below the capillary lengths for the system, thus gravity effects are negligible, and interfacial tension and interaction forces… CONTINUE READING
