Floatability of the water droplet with oil decomposing reagents on paraffin oil
MetadataShow full item record
This study investigates the floatability of water droplets on complex mineral oil surfaces. Different decomposing reagents were also included in the droplets for photo-catalysts, chemical and biological decomposition. Sodium Chloride was also included to simulate seawater scenario. The main stabilizing agent is Sodium Dodecyl Sulphate and Hydrochloric Acid for pH control. The stability of water droplets was evaluated by the contact angle between the interfaces and shape of each drop, following Young-Laplace equation and polynomials function.
