Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

In the development work of new emulsifiers or new mixtures of emulsifiers the need for versatile characterization tools is urgent. In line with this many high throughput techniques are introduced especially within the industries. The tool described in this chapter quickly provides information and understanding of the nature of the investigated surface activity of mixtures of emulsifiers from the industrial world. Another advantage is the direct information obtained about the behavior of the system when the hydrophilic/lipophilic balance is changed.
