Ultrasonic-Assisted Fabrication of Concentrated Triglyceride Nanoemulsions and Nanogels.
TLDR
Such textural and rheological modifications, resulted from droplet size decreasing, could be potentially useful in designing reduced fat gel-like products.
A REVIEW ARTICLE : ON NANOEMULSION
Nanoemulsions have the potential in pharmaceutical industries because of the transparency at high droplet volume fraction, higher rate of bioavailability or diffusion and increased shelf life of the
Natural oil nanoemulsions as cores for layer-by-layer encapsulation
TLDR
Emulsions of three different natural oils were prepared using spontaneous emulsification technique and it was found that in the case of linseed oil, fine emulsion droplets are formed without any surfactant due to its low oil/water interfacial tension.
Process optimization of ultrasound-assisted curcumin nanoemulsions stabilized by OSA-modified starch.
PRODUCTION OF TOCOLS NANOEMULSION BY ULTRASONICATION
TLDR
The objective of this study was to prepare palm-based tocols nanoemulsion using ultrasonication to produce small average droplet size (<100 nm) and narrow droplets size distribution with low polydispersity index (PDI) value.
Flocculation and Separation of Oil Droplets in Ultrasonic Standing Wave Field
A new method for breaking oil in water emulsion based on flocculation of droplets in high intensity ultrasonic standing wave field was developed in this study and the effect of initial droplets size,

TLDR
The results derived from this study can serve as a basis for the evaluation of large-scale liquid-liquid emulsification in the microencapsulation process and homogenization is in general a more effective liquid- liquid emulsifying method.
Impact of oil type on nanoemulsion formation and Ostwald ripening stability.
TLDR
Not only are the nanoemulsions created in this work some of the smallest reported, but they are also thermodynamically stable to Ostwald ripening when at least 50% of the oil phase is an insoluble triglyceride.
Formation of Concentrated Nanoemulsions by Extreme Shear
Abstract We have systematically investigated the production of “nanoemulsions,” droplets of one liquid phase in another immiscible liquid phase that have diameters less than 100 nm. Our approach
