Kinetics in directional drying of water that contains deformable non-volatile oil droplets.

Herein, we report assessments of the kinetics in directional drying of water that contains non-volatile oil droplets, based on direct observations using a confocal microscope. The water was found to evaporate at a constant rate during the initial stage of drying, after which the evaporation rate decreased. The dispersed oil droplets were compressed and… CONTINUE READING
