Light and temperature bi-responsive emulsion foams

Author affiliations

Abstract

The possibility of using light and temperature as stimuli for controlling foamability is presented. The foamability of an emulsion, including both a light responsive polymer and a temperature sensitive surfactant, could be decreased upon heating, completely stopped under UV irradiation, and recovered upon cooling.
