Abstract

A large number of studies have demonstrated the efficacy of ultrasonic emulsification for a growing range of applications. A selection of studies using ultrasonication to emulsify oils for different functions is highlighted in Table 3.1. Selected applications for foods and pharmaceuticals will be showcased in this chapter. While the formation of nanoemulsions are not exclusive to ultrasonics, the acoustic cavitation mechanism used has been shown to provide additional benefits that improve emulsion stability and/or provide additional functionality to the resultant emulsion.
