ABSTRACT
Discusses interfacial tensions between water- and oil-rich phases in the presence of microemulsions. Measurement for ternary systems of water, n-alkanes and nonionic alkylpolyglycolether surfactants; Interfacial tension curve's dependence on the chemical nature of the oil and the surfactant; Decrease in the minimum value of the interfacial tension.

    The microscopic model for microemulsions, introduced earlier by Ciach, Ho\ye, and Stell [J. Chem. Phys. 90, 1214 (1989)] is here specialized to a one-dimensional lattice and solved exactly by the transfer matrix method. The microemulsion phase is identified by the formation of thermally...

    In recent work, a statistical thermodynamic approach was used [J. Chem.

In the present work, this approach is extended to investigate films...
