Oil-water emulsions allows for the solvating of compounds that are normally insoluble in aqueous solutions. These emulsions have numerous applications, both consumer and scientific. This project, conducted at L'Ecole Nationale Sup233rieur des Industries Chemiques (ENSIC), seeks to determine the effects of taurocholic acid, a biological emulsifier produced by the gall bladder, on emulsions and emulsion stability. Two emulsion properties, interfacial tension force and emulsion droplet size was measured while all aspects of emulsion composition -- continuous phase, oil phase and surfactant concentration, were varied.
