Immiscibility arises from the difference in surface tension between the two liquids which requires significant reduction for the emulsion to remain stable.
However, it was found that the addition of thermoplastic starch as a minor phase into synthetic thermoplastic matrix as a major phase causes a reduction of the mechanical properties due to the immiscibility between hydrophilic and hydrophobic properties of both constituent [2].
High vapor density coupled with immiscibility and extreme volatility causes trichloramine vapor to initially accumulate in low-lying places above the pool water line making it difficult to remove with ordinary air circulation methods.
Liquid extractions are based on the chemical concept of immiscibility between two phases, as seen between oil and water.
10) The immiscibility of both liquids yields the distinctive tree or branch-like pattern.
This confirms an immiscibility of crystalization phases as described by (Faker et al.
Table 1: Miscibility and Immiscibility Criteria Based on C[O.
The primary reason is the immiscibility between hydrophobic C-F entities and the continuous aqueous phase resulting from large surface tension differences.
These authors suggest that different degrees of melting, mixing, crystallization, volatilization and liquid immiscibility in conditions of disequilibrium may be involved in the formation of such pyrometamorphic rocks.
It is not clear whether it was immiscibility at the interface of analytical chemistry and systems engineering, or a lack of clarity that integration problems were truly rooted in macro-to-micro interfacing and flow control.
This study further highlights the role of reaction pathways and fluid immiscibility in the extent of hydrocarbon formation at extreme conditions simulating deep subsurface.
She explains how easy assumptions about the immiscibility of Western civilization and the "Islamic world" fail to account for the complicated, sometimes contradictory ideas of the varieties of U.
