New light on emulsions

[Source: ERC] Emulsions are mysterious phenomena – at the molecular level, at least. Found in industrial products such as lubricants, foods such as milk and in each of our cells, emulsions are made up of tiny droplets of one liquid that are dispersed in another. The MINE project used an innovative spectroscopic light-scattering based method to study the molecules at the interface of these two liquids. This provides direct information about the molecules’ composition, orientation and environment – information that is useful for industry and developing new medicines.
