Marcel Rey won the prize for the best oral presentation at the European Colloid and Interface Society conference in Chania from 04.09.2022-09.09.2022. The award, consisting of 500 EUR, is offered by the affiliated MDPI open access journal of polymer science –  Polymers.

In the talk, Marcel presented his recent work on the destabilisation mechanism of temperature-responsive emulsions. He demonstrated that the presence or absence of stimuli-responsive emulsion behaviour is linked to the characteristic microstructure of the stabilising microgel particles. Surprisingly, only emulsions where the microgels are in a double-corona morphology show stimuli-responsive behaviour while emulsions stabilised with microgels in a single-corona morphology remain insensitive to temperature.
