The PhD project will specifically look to further our fundamental understanding of interfacial films used to stabilise emulsions, themselves precursors for microcapsules. These interfacial films will initially be made from a combination of inorganic nanoparticles and polymers and we will study the adsorption of the nanoparticles and polymers at interfaces and the subsequent formation of the interfacial films. We will also study the properties of the films at the interface, including their elasticity, their adsorption strength and their rheological properties. We will then use this knowledge to develop improved interfacial films and to use them for stabilising emulsions.
