9_13/2008Cover Picture: Complex Interfaces and their Role in Protein-Stabilized Soft Materials (ChemPhysChem 13/2008)

The cover picture shows asymmetric drops covered with a globular protein, lysozyme, used to study the role of protein-stabilized interfaces in oil-in-water emulsions by Erni et al. in their manuscript on page 1833. Using a combination of interfacial stress measurements (frequency-dependent surface shear moduli shown on the cover picture) and in-situ structural probing (rheo-small angle light scattering pattern in the background), they demonstrate how in-plane interfacial stresses due to the macromolecular adsorption layer stabilize emulsion drops against deformation.
