Condensation-based method could create stable nanoscale emulsions

The reluctance of oil and water to mix together and stay that way is so well-known that it has become a cliché for describing any two things that do not go together well. Now, a new finding from researchers at MIT might turn that expression on its head, providing a way to get the two substances to mix and remain stable for long periods—no shaking required. The process may find applications in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and processed foods, among other areas.

A new way to mix oil and water

MIT researchers discovered a new way to get oil and water to mix, and stay mixed, by harnessing the condensation of water onto an oil-surfactant mixture. The process creates a nanoscale emulsion ...
