Johnson, A. J., Rodrigues, J. A., & Binks, B. P. (2010). Inversion of 'dry water' to aqueous foam on addition of surfactant. Soft matter, 6(1), 126-135. doi:10.1039/b914706c

Addition of charged surfactant to mixtures of air, water and hydrophobic silica nanoparticles under high shear induces transitional phase inversion from a water-in-air powder to an air-in-water foam. Optical and electron microscopy reveal the non-sph... Read More about Inversion of 'dry water' to aqueous foam on addition of surfactant.
