© 2017 American Chemical Society. We demonstrate that stimulus-responsive capillary-structured materials can be formed from hydrophobized calcium carbonate particles suspended in a non-polar phase (silicone oil) and bridged by very small amounts of a... Read More

The removal of thermally aged films of triacylglycerides by surfactant solutions (2013)
Journal Article
Fletcher, P. D. I., & Dunstan, T. S. (2014). The removal of thermally aged films of triacylglycerides by surfactant solutions. Journal of surfactants and detergents, 17(5), (899-910). doi:10.1007/s11743-013-1514-9. ISSN 1097-3958

Thermal ageing of triacylglycerides (TAG) at high temperatures produces films which resist removal using aqueous surfactant solutions. We used a mass loss method to investigate the removal of thermally aged TAG films from hard surfaces using aqueous... Read More

Compartmentalization and separation of aqueous reagents in the water droplets of water-in-oil high internal phase emulsions (2011)
Journal Article
Dunstan, T. S., & Fletcher, P. D. I. (2011). Compartmentalization and separation of aqueous reagents in the water droplets of water-in-oil high internal phase emulsions. Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 27(7), (3409-3415). doi:10.1021/la200058d. ISSN 0743-7463

We have compartmentalised aqueous reagents and indicator species within the micron-sized water droplets of mixed high internal phase emulsions (HIPEs). Mass transport of the reagents across the micron-thickness oil films separating the water droplets... Read More
