Formation of reverse vesicles in silicone surfactant systems

Horie, Wataru; Olsson, Ulf LU and Aramaki, Kenji (2017) In Journal of Dispersion Science and Technology
Abstract

This study deals with the formation of reverse vesicles based on the phase behavior of silicone surfactants. The surfactants, polyoxyethylene–polydimethylsiloxane and polyoxyethylene–polyoxypropylene–polydimethylsiloxane copolymer, were found to form lamellar liquid crystal phases in three different types of silicone oil upon the addition of a certain amount of water. A conventional method in which reverse vesicles are prepared by physically dispersing this lamellar liquid crystal phase in oil was employed in addition to a technique based on a temperature-induced phase transition. The particle sizes and stabilities of the resulting reverse vesicles were evaluated.
