One problem with this approach was that the purity of the water that is needed for ensuring a stable microemulsion was considerably lower than the purity of the water typically generated by the Army's purification units.
The effectiveness of passive delivery from microemulsions showed some relationship to MTX concentration, but appeared not to be affected by microemulsion composition or phase proportion.
Phase behavior of microemulsion reflected by the pseudo-ternary phase diagram is a key parameter of the application of PDILMs.
The composition, when at 65[degrees]C to 85[degrees]C, is a liquid bicontinuous microemulsion or a lamellar liquid crystal-dispersed bicontinuous microemulsion; at room temperature it is a solid.
