Waterless Microemulsions — 3: Formamide, a Substitute of Water

  • I. Rico
  • A. Lattes


We report here our recent results on the formation and the structure of waterless microemulsions in which formamide was substituted for water in four component systems. In drawing pseudo-ternary phase diagrams, we used transparency criteria to determine the microemulsion monophasic areas.
