Gelled Bicontinuous Microemulsions: A New Type of Orthogonal by Michaela Laupheimer

By Michaela Laupheimer

Microemulsions and gels are famous platforms, which play an important function in colloidal and interfacial technological know-how. against this, the idea that of gel microemulsions remains to be particularly new. Gelled microemulsions are hugely promising for microemulsion purposes within which low viscosity is bad, corresponding to administering a drug-delivering microemulsion to a definite sector of the surface. it truly is necessary to comprehend the houses of and constructions shaped in a procedure combining microemulsion elements and a gelator. This PhD thesis by way of Michaela Laupheimer offers an in-depth dialogue of the section habit and sol-gel transition of a microemulsion gelled via a low molecular weight gelator in addition to the rheological habit of a gelled bicontinuous microemulsion. in addition, the microstructure of the gelled bicontinuous approach is absolutely clarified utilizing ideas like self-diffusion NMR and small perspective neutron scattering (SANS). through evaluating gelled bicontinuous microemulsions with corresponding non-gelled microemulsions and binary gels, it truly is established that bicontinuous microemulsion domain names coexist with a gelator community and that the coexisting buildings own no primary mutual effect. therefore, gelled bicontinuous microemulsions were pointed out as a brand new form of orthogonal self-assembled system.
