The presence of nanoparticles at the interface of the continuous and dispersed phases may not necessarily alter the interfacial tension.
This phenomenon was attributed to the decrease in interfacial tension with the increase in Polyglycerol polyricinoleate and lower the interfacial tension less the shear force required deforming the droplets.
The presence of impurities of oleic acid, di- and trioleates in SMO leads to increasing of interfacial tension, increasing of oil solubility of emulsifier and decreasing of emulsions resistance to crystallization.

Upon simple dilution with water, a translucent microemulsion-like phase with ultra-low interfacial tension is passed in which the phase inversion from water/oil to oil/water occurs.
The main mechanism of surfactant flooding is to reduce the interfacial tension between the surfactant slug and crude oil that improves oil recovery by lowering the capillary forces.

These coupling agents reduce the interfacial tension between the binder and the interfering agents such as wood flour.
Remaining in the work are the chapters on interfacial tension, contact angles, colloidal dispersions, surfactants, interfacial stability, transport effects on interfacial stability, and interfacial dynamics, although they have been updated and often expanded.
