Title

Observation of Temporary Liquid Crystals in Water-In-Oil Microemulsion Systems

Abstract

The transport of components from a water-poor microemulsion brought in contact with water gave rise to temporary liquid crystals in the system. the experimental conditions decided if the birefringent liquid crystalline dispersion should be found in the aqueous or in the oil layer. the main condition turned out to be the relative amount of the oil phase and the aqueous phase; the liquid crystal was predominantly found in the phase with the least volume. © 1998.
