Emulsion Technology Handbook from C.H.I.P.S.

Encyclopedic Handbook of Emulsion Technology
edited by Johan Sjoblom

Offering a complete and thorough examination of all topics affecting emulsion performance, the Encyclopedic Handbook of Emulsion Technology discusses fundamental characteristics, theories, and applications for liquid-liquid colloidal dispersions.

Profiling experimental and traditional measurement techniques in a variety of emulsified systems, including: rheology, nuclear magnetic resonance, dielectric spectroscopy, microcalorimetry, video enhanced microscopy, and conductivity.

With insights and reviews focusing on:

  • fundamental properties and elements of the water/oil interface
  • chemical administration of emulsion processes


  • phase diagrams
  • creaming/sedimentation
  • flocculation
  • coalescence
  • final phase separation
  • dielectric spectroscopy for studying emulsion and microemulsion systems and applications
  • food emulsion systems
  • viable options for different types of oil spills
  • implementation of the Orimulsion Concept for processing extra heavy crude oils
  • surveys the hydrodynamic and dynamic aspects of emulsified systems
  • and more!
