Spontaneous emulsification of water in oil at appreciable interfacial tensions

Spontaneous formation of aqueous droplets in kerosene was observed, which was facilitated by the presence of an oil soluble surfactant: Span® 80 at concentrations above CMC. Kerosene/water interfacial tension under all conditions studied was not lower than 4 mN/m. Therefore, ultra-low interfacial te...
