|Research project title
The study of processes occuring at the immiscible liquid/liquid interface have been advanced considerably by the implementation of a microfluidic approach. This enables the creation of a stable interface for confluent immiscible streams or the formation of monodisperse droplets using a flow focusing approach. Microfluidic techniques have been used to study the kinetics and mechanisms of processes occurring at the immiscible liquid/liquid interface such as two-phase chemical reactions, phase transfer catalysis, ion extraction, nanoparticle formation and photoelectrochemical reactions.
