Question: What is a Zeta potential?
Keywords: zeta,potential,emulsion,emulsions,emulsifiers,emulsifier,
Answer: A Zeta potential in the difference is charges that exists between a liquid/liquid or solid/liquid interface. The Zeta potential is the result of the natural electrokinetic gradient between the two surfaces. In emulsion, ionized emulsifiers can be added to an immiscible mixture to build up electrically repulsive forces. These forces can them help to slow down the coalescence rate of one of the phases.
