The emulsion stability is a major concern while performing emulsion polymerizations and hence, the selection of right surfactant (or a blend of surfactants) allowing green chemical specialties in the product becomes very important.
Although, the selection of bio-based surfactants is been carried out via “trial and error” or HLB approaches since a while, but both the processes face some limitations and are quite expensive and time consuming too…
Fortunately, a new theory HLD-NAC has been introduced for emulsion polymerization that has already been proved in various fields, allows a fast and practical selection of right surfactants for the development of (micro-) emulsions.
It’s an extremely versatile, reliable and effective approach towards emulsion polymerization... Do you know why? Read on to find out more!
