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

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...

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

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 about Particles at oil–air surfaces : powdered oil, liquid oil marbles, and oil foam.

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

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 about Dry oil powders and oil foams stabilised by fluorinated clay platelet particles.

Influence of the degree of fluorination on the behaviour of silica particles at air–oil surfaces (2012)
Journal Article
Binks, B. P., & Tyowua, A. T. (2012). Influence of the degree of fluorination on the behaviour of silica particles at air–oil surfaces. Soft matter, 9(3), 834-845. doi:10.1039/C2SM27395K

We study the behaviour of fumed silica particles coated to different extents with a perfluoro-alkoxysilane in mixtures of air and liquid, for liquids ranging from non-polar hydrocarbons and polar oils to glycerol and water. Comparisons are made with... Read More about Influence of the degree of fluorination on the behaviour of silica particles at air–oil surfaces.
