Microfluidic Approaches for the Study of Emulsions: Transport of Solutes

Abstract : Molecular transport as an ageing process in emulsions is revisited using microfluidic droplet production, manipulation and analysis. We show how microfluidic systems provide extremely quantitative insights into the phenomenon. We designed microfluidic systems to address the specificity of molecular transport in fluorinated oils and showed the role of the surfactant solubilised in the oil phase on the time scale of the exchange and rationalize the effect of water soluble additives on the exchange rate. Finally, we also demonstrate that the droplet packing influences the exchange rate through the number of first neighbours.
