Emulsions Are Slow To Reach Equilibrium
By studying the behavior of tiny particles at an interface between oil and water, researchers at Harvard have discovered that stabilized emulsions may take longer to reach equilibrium than previously thought. Much longer, in fact.
"We were looking at what we thought would be a very simple phenomenon, and we found something very strange," says principal investigator Vinothan Manoharan, Associate Prof. of Chemical Engineering and Physics at the Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS).
