[Emulsions are one such class of metastable colloids, formed of two immiscible components, one forming the dispersing phase and the other dispersed phase, in presence of surface-active chemicals. Emulsions are formed by shearing the two immiscible components resulting the fragmentation of the...
[Emulsions are a form of colloid system that consists of a liquid and a liquid formation. The dispersed phase is made up of minute droplets, whereas the continuous phase or the dispersing phase is made up of the surrounding liquid. In this chapter there is discussion about the Emulsions and its...
[Nano-emulsions are the homogenous solution forms by two immiscible liquids with nanometre size ranging from 20 to 500 nm and is stabilized by the presence of surface-active agents. These are often referred as sub-micro emulsion (SME) or mini-emulsion on the basis of their size. This chapter...
[Petroleum industry is a major part of energy market and plays a dominant role in the global economy as the world’s prime source of fuel. Nanoemulsions are used in several operations of petroleum industry. This chapter briefly describes the application of nanoemulsions in operations such as...
[Enhanced oil recovery technologies are applied for producing oil from reservoir after primary and secondary recovery stages. Application of nanoemulsion for recovery of oil is an efficient EOR technique. This chapters describes the physico-chemical properties of nanoemulsions that leads to...
[Nanoemulsions can be applied as an effective EOR fluid due to its unique properties. This chapter explains the oil recovery mechanism by the application of nanoemulsion, and the challenges associated with the application of nanoemulsion in the reservoir.]
