    'Staff publications' is the digital repository of Wageningen University & Research

    'Staff publications' contains references to publications authored by Wageningen University staff from 1976 onward.

    Publications authored by the staff of the Research Institutes are available from 1995 onwards.

    Full text documents are added when available. The database is updated daily and currently holds about 240,000 items, of which 72,000 in open access.

    We have a manual that explains all the features

Abstract Emulsification with high porosity micro-engineered membranes leads to stable emulsions with a low droplet span when, besides a surfactant in the continuous phase, an additional, suitable surfactant is used in the dispersed phase. This surfactant should exhibit relatively fast adsorption dynamics, which is more critical when the surfactant in the continuous phase has slower dynamics. Dispersed-phase fluxes of up to 92.5 x 10(-6) m(3)/m(2)s could be achieved, which is an order of magnitude higher than previously reported for SPG membrane-based cross-flow emulsification.
