Journal Article
Law, A. D., Horozov, T. S., & Buzza, D. M. A. (2011). The structure and melting transition of two-dimensional colloidal alloys. Soft matter, 7(19), 8923-8931. doi:10.1039/c1sm05446e

We study theoretically the structure and melting transition of two-dimensional (2D) binary mixtures of colloidal particles interacting via a dipole-dipole potential. Using a lattice sum method, we find that at zero temperature (T = 0) the system form... Read More about The structure and melting transition of two-dimensional colloidal alloys.

Two-dimensional colloidal alloys (2011)
Journal Article
Law, A. D., Buzza, D. M. A., & Horozov, T. S. (2011). Two-dimensional colloidal alloys. Physical review letters, 106(12), doi:10.1103/physrevlett.106.128302

We study the structure of mixed monolayers of large (3μm diameter) and small (1μm diameter) very hydrophobic silica particles at an octane-water interface as a function of the number fraction of small particles ξ. We find that a rich variety of two-d... Read More about Two-dimensional colloidal alloys.

Highly permeable macroporous polymers synthesized from pickering medium and high internal phase emulsion templates (2010)
Journal Article
Horozov, T. S., Bismarck, A., Ikem, V. O., & Menner, A. (2010). Highly permeable macroporous polymers synthesized from pickering medium and high internal phase emulsion templates. Advanced materials, 22(32), 3588-3592. doi:10.1002/adma.201000729

Open porous poly-Plckerlng-M/HIPEs with permeabilities of up to 2.6 D were prepared by polymerisation of PickeringM/HIPEs to which small amounts of surfactant were added. The permeability of these poly-Pickering-M/HIPEs is more than 5 times that of c...

"Comb-like" non-ionic polymeric macrosurfactants (2010)
Journal Article
Raduan, N. H., Horozov, T. S., & Georgiou, T. K. (2010). "Comb-like" non-ionic polymeric macrosurfactants. Soft matter, 6(10), 2321-2329. doi:10.1039/b926822g

A series of non-ionic comb-like polymeric macrosurfactants were synthesized by group transfer polymerisation. Specifically, nine amphiphilic block copolymers were prepared based on the hydrophobic n-hexyl methacrylate and the hydrophilic poly(ethylen...

Novel film-calliper method of measuring the contact angle of colloidal particles at liquid interfaces (2007)
Journal Article
Fletcher, P. D., Binks, B. P., Horozov, T. S., Braz, D. A., & Clint, J. H. (2008). Novel film-calliper method of measuring the contact angle of colloidal particles at liquid interfaces. Langmuir : the ACS journal of surfaces and colloids, 24(5), (1678-1681). doi:10.1021/la703414q. ISSN 0743-7463

A simple and reliable film-calliper method of measuring the particle contact angle at the water-air (oil) interface in real time has been developed. Its applicability to submicrometer and micrometer latex and silica particles is demonstrated.

Foams and foam films stabilised by solid particles (2007)
Journal Article

Effect of electrolyte in silicone oil-in-water emulsions stabilised by fumed silica particles (2007)
Journal Article

Partially hydrophobised fumed silica particles are used to make silicone oil-in-water emulsions at natural pH of the aqueous phase. The stability and rheological properties of the emulsions and suspensions are studied at NaCl concentrations in the ra...
