A. R. Abate and D. A. Weitz "High-Order Multiple Emulsions Formed in Poly(dimethylsiloxane) Microfluidics" Small 5(18), 2030-2032 (2009)


microfluidics, multiple emulsions, photoresponsive materials, sol–gel processes, wettability


Droplets encapsulated multiple times in droplets of alternating kinds of fluids (oil, water) were emulsified in a highly controlled way. Glass microcapillary devices were used to guarantee monodispersity of higher order emulsions, at the expense of larger quantity formation.
