Hydrophilic and hydrophobic modifications of colloidal silica particles for Pickering emulsions.

Colloidal silica particles, functionalized with hydrophilic and hydrophobic groups, have been studied for utilization in particle-stabilized emulsions, so called Pickering emulsions. The amounts of attached groups have been characterized using NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis. A range of particles were prepared, with sizes from around 13 to 70nm in… CONTINUE READING
