Abstract

This feature article addresses a variety of unique macroscopic-scale and colloidal-scale interfacial phenomena, such as wetting transitions of oil droplets into molecularly thin films, spontaneous merging and splitting of oil droplets at air-water interfaces, solid monolayer and bilayer formation in mixed cationic surfactant/alkane adsorbed films, switching of foam-film thickness, and oil-in-water emulsion stability. All of these phenomena can be observed using commercial cationic surfactants, liquid alkanes, and water.
