Highly anomalous crystallization behavior has been achieved in phase-inverting emulsion systems by using nonionic surfactants that induce nucleation. In particular, nucleation can be inhibited at the phase inversion, allowing systems held at, or near, this temperature to undergo crystallization either on heating or cooling. This new phenomenon is demonstrated for 27.4 wt % aqueous glycine solutions emulsified in decane using Span 20 Tween 20 blends. The inhibitory effect on interfacial… CONTINUE READING
