Abstract
The paper examines the importance and application of surfactants as stabilizing agents. The characteristics of surfactants and emulsifiers are examined. The surface effects on phase behaviour in emulsion when given amounts of water, oil, salt and surfactant are mixed together and demonstrated. The Langmuir film balance method for studying surfactants layers is explored.....
