    Abstract: The present invention has an objective to easily obtain an emulsion exhibiting superior storage stability, and in particular, an emulsion of a polyorganosiloxane. The present invention provides a method for producing an emulsion characterized by obtaining an emulsion by emulsifying a mixture of an oil and a surfactant, obtained by synthesizing the surfactant in the oil. In particular, the method is suitably used for the preparation of an emulsion of an organopolysiloxane (A) which is usually difficult to be stably emulsified. A silicone-based surfactant (B), and in particular, a silicone-based surfactant having a small degree of polymerization of a siloxane chain such as a trisiloxane is synthesized in an oil. Thereby, an emulsion exhibiting superior storage stability can be produced.

    Abstract: Reversible switchable surfactants are provided. A surfactant is the salt of an amidine or guanidine: having at least one R group that is a hydrophobic moiety selected from the group consisting of higher aliphatic moiety, higher siloxyl moiety, higher aliphatic/siloxyl moiety, aliphatic/aryl moiety, siloxyl/aryl moiety, and aliphatic/siloxyl/aryl moiety. The other R groups are smaller moieties such as H, C1 to C4 aliphatic or the like. The surfactant is turned on by a gas that liberates hydrogen ions, such as, for example, carbon dioxide, which liberates hydrogen ions in the presence of water. The surfactant is turned off by exposure to a flushing gas and/or heating. When “on” the surfactants are useful to stabilize emulsions, and when “off” they are useful to separate immiscible liquids or a liquid and a solid. The surfactants find uses in polymerization and in the oil industry.

  • Publication number: 20090181070
    Abstract: A method of making an oil-in-water emulsion is described in which an oil emulsifier and a polysaccharide emulsion stabiliser, which stabiliser comprises a Xanthan polysaccharide and a polyglucomannan polysaccharide, is dispersed in an oil. The oil-based dispersion so formed is then combined with water, preferably at low temperature and under low shear conditions, to form an oil-in-water emulsion. The polysaccharide emulsion stabiliser and optionally oil emulsifier may be dispersed directly into a relatively polar oil to form the oil-based dispersion or, alternatively, into a relatively polar non-aqueous liquid medium, which medium then being mixed with the oil before it is combined with the water to form the emulsion. The oil-in-water emulsions are particularly useful in personal care and cosmetic applications such as sprays, body moisturisers, sun screens and wet wipes for cosmetic or personal hygiene cleaning uses.
