Improved control over particle sizes and stability of concentrated fluorocarbon emulsions by using mixed fluorocarbon/hydrocarbon molecular dowels.


The use of a surfactant system consisting in equimolar amounts of egg yolk phospholipids and of a mixed fluorocarbon/hydrocarbon amphiphile (C8H17CH = CHC8F17) allows the preparation of concentrated (90% w/v, i.e. 47% v/v) emulsions of perfluorooctyl bromide (perflubron), with average particle sizes ranging from 0.12 to 16 microns post-sterilization… (More)
