X-Ray Diffraction and Scattering by Microemulsions

  • S. S. Marsden


Microemulsions are being actively studied as well as field tested as an EOR method in many places. We have learned a great deal about some of their physical properties and their flow in porous media, but we know remarkably little about their physical structure in the size range of colloidal particles. There is some reason to believe that the other properties of microemulsions as well as their performance in EOR are determined by this colloidal structure in the same way that the properties and performance of oil well drilling fluids are determined by the colloidal structure of clay minerals in aqueous dispersions.
