Universality in microdroplet nucleation during solvent exchange in Hele-Shaw like channels

19 Dec 2020 Yanshen Li Kai Leong Chong Hanieh Bazyar Rob G. H. Lammertink Detlef Lohse

Micro and nanodroplets have many important applications such as in drug delivery, liquid-liquid extraction, nanomaterial synthesis and cosmetics. A commonly used method to generate a large number of micro or nanodroplets in one simple step is solvent exchange (also called nanoprecipitation), in which a good solvent of the droplet phase is displaced by a poor one, generating an oversaturation pulse that leads to droplet nucleation...
