Dielectric behavior of double emulsions with "core-shell droplet" morphology
The dielectric behavior of double emulsions with "core-shell droplet" morphology is investigated over a broad range of frequency. A new modified Pauly-Schwan model is proposed for the complex permittivity of double emulsions. The proposed model takes into consideration the morphology and packing limit of droplets. The dielectric behaviors of oil-in-watei-in-oil (O/W/O) and water-in-oil-in-water (W/O/W) types of double emulsions, as predicted by the proposed model, are discussed.
