Nanoemulsions are ultrafine dispersions of two immiscible liquids that are stabilized using surfactants. With dimensions ranging from 20 to 200 nanometers, nanoemulsions provide a large surface area and low surface tension. Due to their novel optical and physical properties, nanoemulsions find adoption across a range of application sectors, which includes food and beverages, drug delivery, cosmetics, and personal care. This issue of Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TOE provides an overview of the nanoemulsions technology, the different manufacturing methods used, trends driving adoption, the application landscape, and analysis of patent activity. Strategic insights are provided to highlight the factors driving adoption, and future areas of development that stakeholders involved in technology development can concentrate on.
The Advanced Coating & Surface Technology TechVision Opportunity Engine (TOE) provides intelligence on technologies, products, processes, applications and strategic insights on various coatings across industries.
