Project Title

Physical Chemistry of Limonene microemulsions and their interaction with oil.

Research – A Closer Look

My project is funded by Flotek Industries and aims to improve our understating of limonene microemulsions and how they interact with oil. A number of complementary techniques have been used to characterise the solution and interfacial behaviour of emulsions in which limonene is the oil phase and surfactant is a non-ionic polyoxyethylene ether (C12E7).


I like to fill my free time with sports and exercise. I help organise staff volleyball sessions, attend staff badminton at the sports centre and usually take my golf clubs wherever i go, except the lab of course…..
