Pickering emulsions have received widespread attention for encapsulating lipophilic guests in the biomedical and food fields. However, control of the stabilities and demulsification of Pickering emulsions to allow the release of encapsulated species remains a challenge in gastrointestinal conditions. In this work, phosphatidylcholine-kaolinite was prepared by modification of natural kaolinite with phosphatidylcholine and was used as an emulsifier to stabilize medium-chain triglyceride (MCT… CONTINUE READING
