Emulsions: Principles and Preparation
Emulsions are mixtures of fluids that are immiscible. Usually one fluid is present as small droplets in another phase. There are emulsions of oil in water, called oil-inwater emulsions (abbreviated as O/W), but also emulsions of water in oil (W/O). The droplet phase is called the dispersed phase, the surrounding phase the continuous phase. Emulsions are important in a great diversity of products.
