Event Details

Emulsions are used in virtually all formulations to form a stable system containing both aqueous and non-aqueous ingredients. There are a number of ways to produce emulsions using surfactants, polymers and even solid particles. However, choosing the right emulsifier can be difficult and this can lead to instability such as separation and creaming.

This meeting will look at the science of emulsions. The first two sessions will provide an overview of how to produce a formulation and help on how to choose the right emulsifying system.

The remainder of the afternoon will be given over to how to homogenise an emulsion and characterisation, covering the effect of high shear mixing and emulsion analysis.
