Transparent Water-in-Oil Dispersions: the Oleopathic Hydro-Micelle

  title={Transparent Water-in-Oil Dispersions: the Oleopathic Hydro-Micelle},
  author={T. P. HOAR and J H Schulman},
IT is well known that oil – alkali-metal soap (or cationic soap, such as cetyl trimethyl ammonium bromide) – water systems of certain concentrations exist as transparent, electrically non-conducting dispersions, in which the oil is the continuous phase. Dilution of these systems with excess water inverts them to oil-in-water emulsions which are milky for low soap/oil ratios and transparent for sufficiently high soap/oil ratios. The transparent oil-continuous systems are familiar as 'soluble-oil… CONTINUE READING
