What is the best was to measure the pH of emulsions and fatty solutions?
Summary
pH in emulsions and fatty solutions
Answer
When measuring fats and emulsions, it is important to choose an electrode with the correct diaphram and electrolyte and a junction that is easy to clean. Open liquid junction and sleeve junction probes would be recommended. After a measurement, the probe should be cleaned thoroughly. Any remaining fat or oil must be removed with soap or a surface-active agent.
