Control of emulsion type and droplet size by tuning the wettability of carbon nanotubes through oxidation.
Understanding how to control emulsion properties allows for control over emulsion interfacial area. Tuning of diffusion of molecules between oil and water phases can be achieved by controlling the interfacial area, which can have implications for reactions carried out in biphasic systems.
