Abstract

This research has successfully generated the uniform emulsions in electrospraying microfluidic chip, and the satellite droplets of various sizes were separated in the separation channels by an electric field. The emulsion size is controlled by the ratio of water and oil phase flow rates, and the electric filed. The electric field affected on emulsion size when the ratio of water and oil phase flow rates is excess of 18. When the ratio is 73, the minimum emulsion size is 0.98 μm under the electric field at 5000 V/mm. The separation channels precisely differentiated the various satellite droplets in diameter from big size to small size using the electric filed.
