Abstract

For conventional high internal phase emulsions (HIPEs) with an external osmotic pressure greater than Laplace pressure, once the osmotic balance is broken, the swelling or shrinking of the aqueous phase can easily trigger phase separation. Mixing two immiscible dispersed phases in a double HIPE can evolve differently following an osmotic shock, which is expected to creat a synergistic effect that can frustrate the phase separation of the system.
