Series: Chemical Engineering Methods and Technology
BISAC: SCI055000

In this book, the authors discuss the processes, new technology and current applications of emulsification. Topics include ultrasound-assisted emulsification microextraction; microbial emulsifiers and their environmental applications potential; alternative methods for emulsification; the physical and chemical modifications on emulsifying properties of proteins; low-energy nano-emulsions and their applications as CT blood pool contrast media; and emulsification in mini-channels for biodiesel production.
