Researchers from IIT Bombay discover conductivity on oil

Mumbai | India

Scientists believed that the efficacy of electro-coalescence depended only on the conductivity of water and not on that of oil. In a recent study, researchers from the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay) have shown that the conductivity of the oil, does play a significant role in this process. Their study, published in the journal Colloids and Surfaces A, suggests that better conductivity of the oil may help water droplets come together.
