Abstract

Abstract The phenomenon of diffusocapillary flow is demonstrated utilizing a vegetable oil droplet suspended in a host medium composed of Dow Corning 200 silicone fluids. The host fluid was prepared in such a way that the average polymer length was varied across the surface of the droplet, thus creating an interfacial tension gradient with concomitant Marangoni flow.
