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...

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. ...
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 ...

Asmaoglu, Serdar; Gündüz, Güngör; MAVİŞ, BORA; Colak, Uner (Wiley, 2016-08-05)
A new generation multihollow opaque polymer pigment was synthesized by suspension polymerization of water-in-oil-in-water emulsion method, where methyl methacrylate and ethylene glycol dimethacrylate monomer mixture was used as oil phase. The effects of surfactant and cosurfactant composition in terms of hydrophilic/lipophilic balance on the stability of the water-in-oil emulsion and the size of water droplets were studied. Low droplet sizes and the optimum stability were obtained with Span 80&Tween 80 surf...
The Effect of dispersed phase feed rate on the production of pickering emulsions
Dönmez, Dila; Ayrancı Tansık, İnci; Department of Chemical Engineering (2018)
Emulsions are fundamental in many applications such as food, petroleum, detergent, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries. Pickering emulsions are defined as emulsions of any type, either oil-in water, water-in-oil or even multiple, stabilized by solid particles instead of surfactants. Solid particles may prevent the droplets from coalescing by getting adsorbed at the interface, and thus stabilizing the emulsion. Pickering emulsions have more advantages over emulsions stabilized by surfactants in terms of s...
