complex fluid interfaces are ubiquitous and appear most commonly in a number of
formulations and products such as emulsion fuels, personal care products, food materials,
polymer blends, etc. However, each of the above mentioned materials are
engineered by the addition of a third component, so-called additives. The
purpose of the additives is to enable their formulation and to provide
long-term stability, there by prolong the shelf life of products. The additives
that are commonly used comprise of nano and colloidal
particles, various types of surfactants, homo and hetero polymers. These
additives when adsorbed at the interface of two fluids significantly alter the
structure and mechanical properties of the interface. Therefore the measurement
of structure and interfacial rheology of filled-complex fluid interfaces is of
great interest to industries as well as in the fundamental study various
physical phenomena in two-dimensions. Therefore there is enormous interest in
the study of interplay between structure and interfacial rheology of interfaces
containing particles, surfactants or polymers.
provides a platform for leading scientists and researchers to discuss recent
results in the rheology and modeling of materials at fluid-fluid interfaces.
