For this purpose, water-in-oil (w/o) HIPEs were prepared by dispersing the aqueous phase (pullulan is dissolved in deionised water) in the continuous phase (GMA and BDDMA mixture).
Consisting of dispersed colloidal droplets, typically around 50-600 nm in size, within an immiscible continuous phase, nanoemulsions are used routinely to encapsulate drugs that are poorly soluble or susceptible to hydrolysis and/or enzymatic breakdown.
The silicone is immobile in the continuous phase of the polyamide.
Key statement: A thermoplastic elastomer composition having a continuous phase and a dispersed phase, wherein the continuous phase comprising an epoxy-modified polyamide resin and the dispersed phase comprising a halogenated isoolefin-paraalkylstyrene copolymer rubber, wherein the thermoplastic elastomer composition is obtained by melt-kneading halogenated isoolefm-paraalkylstyrene copolymer rubber, a polyamide resin, and a polyfiinctionai epoxy compound having two or more epoxy groups per molecule in an amount of 0.
When you decrease the temperature to just above the temperature at which gelatine solidifies and a temperature-induced phase separation occurs, maltodextrin-enriched droplets form in a gelatine-rich continuous phase.
Although simulation software for either discrete or continuous applications matured during the last decades, to date a large gap for integrated software to describe the interaction between a particulate and continuous phase exists.
Adding water to the solventborne resin resulted in a substantial increase in viscosity as water became the continuous phase pushing the polymer chains into micelles, which then formed clumps that impeded flow.
PPG Industries has been granted a patent for a coating composition comprised of a continuous phase comprised of water and a dispersed phase comprised of a microgel having a mean particle size of greater than 50 nanometers to 900 nanometers and formed from reactants comprised of no more than 5% by weight, based on the total weight of the reactants, of a multi-ethylenically unsaturated compound, and a plurality of monoethylenically unsaturated compounds selected so as to provide a copolymer having a calculated Tg of greater than 100[degrees] C and comprised of a cycloaliphatic (meth)acrylate.
