Abstract Traditionally emulsions are formed using a surfactant to stabilise the oil water interface and prevent coalescence of the droplets, although other materials such as particles or proteins can be used to stabilise emulsions. Bancroft's rule is a good guide as to whether a water in oil or oil in water emulsion is formed, namely if the surfactant is water soluble an oil in water emulsion is formed, whilst if the surfactant is oil soluble a water in oil emulsion is formed. In this paper we… CONTINUE READING
