Modulation of metallic oxide particle behaviour in a formulation: physicochemical and/or sensory properties of emulsions as a tool to identify particles interactions within the matrix

Abstract : Particles of metal oxides such as silica (SiO2), alumina (Al2O3) or titanium dioxide (TiO2) are nowadays widely used in manufactured products. The interest of these solid particles lies in the possibility to vary their size (a few nanometers to several micrometers), their shape, and their state of aggregation, as well as their specific surface. In addition, these metal oxides are good candidates for surface modification (coating with other metal oxides, silanization) to also modulate their surface properties [1-2]. Thus, incorporated in a complex medium such as an emulsion, these solid particles, due to their varied physicochemical properties, will be able to interact with all the constituents of the matrix. This represents a subject of great scientific interest, from both applied and fundamental point of view. Depending on its surface properties, the particle can manifest more affinity with the continuous phase, the dispersed one, or can be placed at the interface [3]. In the latter situation, the particle can act as a surfactant and can even replace the molecular surfactants conventionally used. The aim of this study lays on its multiscale approach: from microscopic scale through the investigation of the ingredients interactions (guided by the type of particle used) to macroscopic scale with the characterization of stable, homogeneous and totally emulsified systems (as it was a required condition to provide an adapted system for macroscopic evaluations). Rheological, textural and sensory behavior, as well as emulsion colloid size and size distribution, were used as a tool to identify the role of the particles on the matrix organization. One objective was to find the emulsions optimal formulation process and composition to accomplish the desired requirements for this study. The obtained results clearly showed the importance of the particle properties in emulsion formation and stabilization. Interactions created inside the matrix were governed by the specific surface and the coating type of the particles. Thus, the modulation of the emulsion can be possible relying on the particle/emulsifier/oil phase interaction and ratio. [1] S. Björkegren, L. Nordstierna, A. Törncrona and A.
