    The flow of the microemulsion dioctylsulfosuccinate (AOT)/decane/water through 0.1 and 1.0 μm diameter pores was studied for water droplet volume fractions ranging from 0 to 0.5. The viscosity of these microemulsions, as measured in a capillary viscometer with a bore of ≊1 mm diameter,...

    We describe a new gradient technique to determine the coexistence curve of partially miscible liquid mixtures. The method allows this determination to be done using a single sample and gives the proper slice (temperature-order parameter) of the coexistence surface, in contrast to the...

    The continuous inversion from a water-in-oil (w/o) microemulsion at low temperatures to an oil-in-water (o/w) microemulsion at higher temperatures within the one-phase channel of water (0.6% NaCl)–n-decane–AOT microemulsion system is investigated by small angle neutron scattering...

    The problem of water wave scattering by a circular ice floe, floating in fluid of finite depth, is formulated and solved numerically. Unlike previous investigations of such situations, here we allow the thickness of the floe (and the fluid depth) to vary axisymmetrically and also incorporate a...

    The coexistence curves of the system dodecylammonium chloride+water+KCl have been measured at different salt concentrations. The results can be described with the usual Ising 3-D value for the critical exponent β=0.325. The analysis of the diameter indicates that the correct order parameter...

    Experimental data on the thermodynamics of phase separation of an ionic microemulsions [sodium bis(2-ethylhexyl)sulfosuccinate-water-isooctane] are presented. They are obtained by differential scanning microcalorimetric measurements across the upper phase boundary. Sample compositions are chosen...

    Small-angle neutron scattering measurements were performed on symmetric microemulsions containing equal volume fractions of water/formamide, n-octane, and a sufficient amount of n-alkyl polyglycol ether (CiEj). By changing the surfactant chain length in the order C8E3, C6E2, and C4E1 in pure...
