The same authors, on a separate publication, have also investigated the effect of the time of emulsification, quantity, and HLB of surfactant on the emulsified fuel properties of two-phase water-in-oil and oil-in-water emulsions and three-phase oil-in-water-in-oil emulsion prepared by ultrasonic vibrator.
Analysis revealed that both particle size and the concentration of the microfibrillated cellulose played a major role in the stability of the oil-in-water emulsions.
The process has the following steps: mixing a polymer compound that has, in a side chain, a group represented by the formula -(OX)n-E2-R, wherein X represents a C1 to C6 linear or branched divalent saturated hydrocarbon group, n is a number of 5 to 300, Xs whose number is n may be the same as or different from one another, E2 represents an ether linkage (--O--) or an ester linkage (--OCO--or--COO--), and R represents a C4 to C30 linear or branched hydrocarbon group which may be substituted with a hydroxy group; a water-soluble polyol; a nonionic surfactant; a hydrophobic compound and water; then diluting the resulting mixture with water, so that the average emulsion particle diameter of the emulsion in the oil-in-water emulsion is 0.1 to 2 [micro]m.
New Zealand scientists have developed a multilayer oil-in-water emulsion system as a carrier for non-polar compounds.
The technology is based on a natural oil-in-water emulsion derived from plant oil seeds.
US 6,737,444 B1: Dew Coming Corp., Midland, MI, patented a method to make an aqueous silicone resin containing emulsion by mixing a silicone resin blend, a non-resinous silicone polymer and an inversion assisting polymer to form a homogeneous oil phase; mixing one or more surfactants with the homogenous oil phase; adding water to the mixture to cause an inversion of the continuous phase and the dispersed phase, forming an oil-in-water emulsion; diluting the oil-in-water emulsion by adding more water and recovering an oil-in-water emulsion with silicone particles ranging 0.1-5 microns in size.
The objective of researchers at Utah State University was to increase the retention of vitamin [D.sub.3] in Cheddar cheese by incorporating it as part of an oil-in-water emulsion. They developed a procedure for adding up to 234 international units (IUs) per 30 grams of vitamin D in full- and reduced-fat Cheddar cheese.

In food systems, oil-in-water emulsions generally consist of water and oil, with the oil being dispersed as small droplets in the water [5].
Recently, they evaluated the influence of fatty acid chain length on the emulsification properties of lactose esters in 20% oil-in-water emulsions. Their results show that lactose esters containing decanoate and myristate may be useful emulsifiers in food systems.
