Polymer-modified w/o microemulsions - with tunable droplet-droplet interactions

  • Water soluble polymers can be incorporated into reverse microemulsion droplets without leaving the isotropic phase region. When the polymer is attached to the surfactant film the bending elasticity is changed, and droplet-droplet interactions are influenced. Different methods are available for studying the droplet-droplet interactions in more detail, e.g. SANS. SAXS and DLS. Conductometric measurements are very useful for detecting exchange processes between the droplets. In presence of polyampholytes a pH dependent tuning of the membrane properties becomes possible, experimentally detectable by conductometry.
