Technical Abstract: Emulsions are widely applied in food, cosmeceutical and medicinal formulations. Smaller and highly stable droplets of emulsions are important for their application. This research reports that by using soybean oil-based surfactants, the higher stabilized oil-in-water emulsions were obtained via an ultrasonic method. The results show these surfactants have high emulsifying and stabilizing abilities, and they are expected to find applications in various industrial areas.
