dc.description.abstract Microemulsion systems that serve as water in diesel fuel were formulated using minimum amount of sucrose laurate at 25°C. Comparative experiments were also conducted using n-heptane. It was found that in order to formulate diesel and microemulsions a cosurfactant should be added. Alcohols such as 1-butanol,1-pentanol, 1-hexanol, and 1-heptanol served as cosurfactants. The area of the one-phase microemulsion region varies depending on the cosurfactant structure and composition. A continuous microemulsion region was observed with 1-butanol and 1-pentanol. Water solubilization capacity and thermodynamics as a function of alcohol chain length was determined. en_US
