We have investigated the effects of glycerol on the formation and rheological behavior of cubic phase (I(1)) and related O/I(1) gel emulsion in a water/C(12)EO(8)/dodecane system at 25 degrees C. The phase behavior of the water/C(12)EO(8)/dodecane system was studied by optical observation and structures of different liquid crystalline phases were identified by small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS) techniques. Addition of dodecane (2 wt%) to aqueous solutions of C(12)EO(8) in a concentrated region… CONTINUE READING
