Free vs. Controlled Radical Polymerization

Tony O’Lenick asks: What is the difference between free radical polymerization and controlled radical polymerization?

Water Activity

Water activity is a key consideration in preserving cosmetics. As this article discusses, there is an important difference between the amount of water present in a product and availability of this water for microorganism growth.

Residual Monomer in Radical vs. Condensation Polymerization Techniques

Industry expert Tony O’Lenick explains the difference between residual monomer concentration in radical vs. condensation polymerization techniques.

Bench and Beyond: Correlating Water Contact Angles and Moisturization/Sensory Claims

While staff that normally writes the Bench & Beyond column is taking some time off, this space offers an article by Olga V. Dueva-Koganov, B. Scott Jaynes, Colleen Rocafort, Shaun Barker and Jianwen Mao at Ciba Specialty Chemicals Corporation in Tarrytown, N.Y., USA.

Preparing PIC Emulsions with Very Fine Particle Size

A new technology has been developed for the production of o/w phase inversion concentration (PIC) emulsions with a very fine particle size and excellent storage stability. The concept is based on non-ethoxylated emulsifiers and can be easily used for the preparation of impregnating lotions for cosmetic wet wipes.

Comparatively Speaking: Emulsion vs. Invert Emulsion

Industry expert Tony O'Lenick explains the difference between an emulsion and an invert emulsion.

Formulating Water-in-Oil Emulsions: A Scary Endeavor
