Oil-in-oil emulsions stabilised solely by solid particles (2015)
Journal Article
Tyowua, A. T., & Binks, B. P. (2016). Oil-in-oil emulsions stabilised solely by solid particles. Soft matter, 12(3), (876-887). doi:10.1039/c5sm02438b. ISSN 1744-683X

A brief review of the stabilisation of emulsions of two immiscible oils is given. We then describe the use of fumed silica particles coated with either hydrocarbon or fluorocarbon groups in acting as sole stabilisers of emulsions of various vegetable... Read More

Particles at oil–air surfaces : powdered oil, liquid oil marbles, and oil foam (2015)
Journal Article
Tyowua, A. T., Binks, B. P., Johnston, S. K., & Sekine, T. (2015). Particles at oil–air surfaces : powdered oil, liquid oil marbles, and oil foam. ACS applied materials & interfaces, 7(26), (14328-14337). doi:10.1021/acsami.5b02890. ISSN 1944-8244

The type of material stabilized by four kinds of fluorinated particles (sericite and bentonite platelet clays and spherical zinc oxide) in air–oil mixtures has been investigated. It depends on the particle wettability and the degree of shear. Upon vi... Read More

Dry oil powders and oil foams stabilised by fluorinated clay platelet particles (2013)
Journal Article
Tyowua, A. T., Binks, B. P., & Sekine, T. (2014). Dry oil powders and oil foams stabilised by fluorinated clay platelet particles. Soft matter, 10(4), (578-589). doi:10.1039/c3sm52748d. ISSN 1744-683X

A series of platelet sericite particles coated to different extents with a fluorinating agent has been characterised and their behaviour in mixtures with air and oil studied. The material which forms by vigorous shaking depends on both the surface te... Read More
