The effects of emulsifier type, phase ratio, and homogenization methods on stability of the double emulsion

2017-01-01
The double emulsion technology has a potential effect on the development of diversity and quality of functional foods by means of decreasing oil or salt concentration, encapsulating and controlling release of valuable components. In this study, it was aimed to formulate stable double emulsions to be used in food systems. W1/O ratios of primary emulsions, stabilized by polyglycerol polyricinoleate (PGPR), were designed as 2:8 and 4:6, and (W1/O)/W2 ratios of the double emulsions were used as 2:8 and 4:6. W/O/W phase ratios, homogenization methods applied to primary emulsion (high-speed homogenization, ultrasonic homogenization), and emulsifier types used in W2 phase [sodium caseinate (SC), xanthan gum, lecithin-whey protein concentrate] were used as independent variables. Particle size and distributions, stability, encapsulation efficiency (EE), rheological properties, long-term stability, and morphological properties of the double emulsions were investigated.The double emulsions prepared with SC and (W1/O)/W2 ratio of 4:6, were found to have the higher stability values, higher apparent viscosity, and lower particle size. High-speed homogenization applied to primary emulsion reduced particle size of the double emulsion and increased apparent viscosity, but did not affect stability and EE of the double emulsions, significantly.

Fused deposition modeling (FDM) filaments made of recycled materials are desirable for environmentally friendly and sustainable manufacturing of prototypes and load-bearing components in many applications. We investigate the effect of FDM process parameters on the mechanical properties of 3D-printed parts made of recycled polyethylene terephthalate (rPET) filaments. Increasing the nozzle temperature from 230 degrees C to 260 degrees C improves the strength of the specimens by 100%. Using a raster orientatio...
Characterization and Electrical Conductivity of Poly(ethylene glycol)/Polyacrylonitrile/Multiwalled Carbon Nanotube Composites
Aqeel, Salem M.; Kucukyavuz, Zuhal (Wiley, 2011-01-05)
Polymer blends based on poly(ethylene glycol), polyacrylonitrile, and multiwalled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were prepared by the solvent cast technique from the dispersion of the MWNTs in the concentration range 0-3.45 wt %. The interaction of the MWNTs with the polymer blend was confirmed by a Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy study. The thermal properties of the polymer blend with the MWNTs were carried out by means of differential scanning calorimetry (DSC). It was evident from DSC that the p...

Double emulsion technology has potential effect on development of diversity and quality of functional foods by decreasing the oil and salt concentration, encapsulating and controlled release of valuable components. In this study, it was aimed to formulate stable double emulsions to be used for reduction of oil content of mayonnaise samples. W1/O ratios of primary emulsions, stabilized by polyglycerol polyricinoleate, were designed as 2:8, and 4:6, and (W1/O)/W2 ratios of double emulsions were 2:8, and 4:6. ...
Characterization of different double-emulsion formulations based on food-grade emulsifiers and stabilizers
PULATSU, Ezgi Tekin; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (Informa UK Limited, 2018-01-01)
This study focused on the preparation and characterization of water-in-oil-in-water (W1/O/W2)-type double emulsions designed by food-grade emulsifiers and stabilizers. The primary objective of this study was to compare different emulsion formulations in terms of droplet size, rheology, and stability and to reduce the amount of polyglycerol poliricinoleate (PGPR). To achieve these goals, PGPR and a PGPR-lecithin blend were utilized in the formation of the primary phase (W1/O), while varying concentrations of...
Combined effect of point defects and layer number on the adsorption of benzene and toluene on graphene
Akay, Tugce Irfan; Toffoli, Daniele; Toffoli, Hande (Elsevier BV, 2019-06-30)
Understanding the adsorption properties of organic molecules on graphene-based substrates is important for such applications as air and water filters. Pristine graphene is often the model substrate used in the theoretical investigations of this problem. While useful, pristine single-layer graphene is however an idealized model. In this work, we assess the effect of the presence of point defects (single vacancy, divacancy, and the Stone-Wales defect) in single-layer and bilayer graphene on the energetics of ...
