Oil-in-water emulsions are currently being investigated to facilitate the transport of viscous heavy oils. The behavior of these emulsions is largely controlled by the interfaces between oil drops and water. The surface-active components of crude oil, such as asphaltenes and naphthenic acids, compete among themselves at these interfaces and also with possibly added synthetic surfactant emulsifier. Here, we present a study of dynamic interfacial tension of interfaces between water and a model… CONTINUE READING
