An emulsion is droplets of one fluid suspended in another fluid. The stability of an emulsion depends on both the initial size of the droplet and a surfactant which is often added to stabilize the surface of the droplet. Particle size analysis is used during the emulsification process to ensure optimum sizing of the droplets and during stability studies to identify any creaming (coalescence of droplets) due to an unstable dispersion.
