An experimental method to measure the zeta-potential of small liquid droplets dispersed in another immiscible liquid was presented in this paper. Basically, a liquid droplet was held stationary in a test cell by applying a proper static electric field. An existing theory shows that the electrical force experienced by the droplet can be related to the zeta… (More)
