Nonaqueous phase behavior and reverse micellar structures of diglycerol monolaurate (DGL) in different nonpolar organic solvents, such as n-decane, n-tetradecane, and n-hexadecane, have been studied over a wide range of compositions and temperatures. The equilibrium phases are identified by means of visual observation and small-angle X-ray scattering (SAXS). A solid phase present at lower temperature swells small amount of oils and transforms into a lamellar liquid crystalline structure at… CONTINUE READING
