PC-polyHIPEs with large and interconnected pores were fabricated by light-induced polymerization of dopamine in transparent polyHIPEs which were prepared by polymerization within high internal phase emulsions.
At first, the internal phase was prepared at 60[degrees]C and added to the external phase at room temperature.
As shown in Figure 1, the breaking percentage of the multiple emulsion was faster for the emulsion with 10% of salt in the internal phase, followed by the emulsion of 2.5%, and 0.5% for the slowest breaking.
In oil-in-water emulsions, it behaves like a typical oil/wax phase component: with the right emulsifier/stabilizer system, it will thicken emulsions via internal phase packing.
Emulsion templating is a unique method used for the preparation of hierarchical macroporous polymers by the polymerization of a high internal phase emulsion (HIPE) to obtain a polyHIPE known by highly porous structure, well-defined morphology, and low density [7-10].
have developed an insulation coating with a phase-change material to counteract the internal phase transitions.

High internal phase emulsion (HIPE) copolymer and interpenetrating network foams were prepared from 2-ethylhexyl acrylate (EHA), styrene (S) and divinylbenzene (DVB) using a unique process.
8,137,415 B2 covers an aqueous composition for hair that comprises at least one alkalizing agent and an aqueous emulsion of divinyldimethicone/dimethicone copolymer with an internal phase viscosity of more than 1x108 mm2is measured at 0.01 Hz and at about 25[degrees] C.
