Water in oil (W/O) emulsions are dispersed systems which have very wide application as a carriers in the food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry products. The main problem with practical application of such systems is their low stability. The emulsifiers used to stabilize this type of emulsions are with low hydrophilic-lipophilic balance values. The present work examines the possibility of the application of mixtures of lipophilic emulsifiers polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR… Expand

The “Pitangueira” tree (Eugenia uniflora L.) can be found in South America, Southern Asia and Africa (Arai et al., 1999). Its fruits, called “Pitanga” or the Brazilian cherry, are edible and eatenExpand


Stability mechanisms of liquid water-in-oil emulsions
Although the stability of emulsions is widely discussed in the literature, most of them dealt with oil-in-water emulsions or water-in-oil systems with solid and semi-solid structures, which areExpand
Effect of magnesium salt concentration in water-in-oil emulsions on the physical properties and microstructure of tofu.
The results showed that the stability of W/O emulsions improved as the concentrations of polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR) and MgCl2 increased, suggesting a more rapid reaction between magnesium ions and protein molecules. Expand
Preparation and characterization of water/oil and water/oil/water emulsions containing biopolymer-gelled water droplets.
It is shown that W/O/W emulsions containing oil droplets with gelled water droplets inside can be produced by using either a membrane homogenizer (MH) or a high-pressure valve homogenizers (HPVH). Expand

Abstract Emulsions play an important role in the formulation of foods for production of o/w emulsions, e.g., dressings, artificial milks, cream liqueurs, as well as for preparation of some w/oExpand
Pickering w/o emulsions: drug release and topical delivery.
The skin absorption from Pickering emulsions as a new dosage form was investigated for the first time to focus on the effect of the interfacial layer on the drug release and skin absorption processes. Expand
1 Emulsion Formation, Stability, and Rheology
Emulsions are a class of disperse systems consisting of two immiscible liquids [1–3]. The liquid droplets (the disperse phase) are dispersed in a liquid medium (the continuous phase). Several classesExpand
Surface Forces and Emulsion Stability
Emulsions are dispersions of one liquid in another liquid, most commonly water-in-oil or oil-in-water. The total interfacial area in an emulsion is very large, and because the interfacial area isExpand
