Title: Kinetics and dynamics of dissolution/mixing of a high-viscosity liquid phase in a low-viscosity solvent phase
Abstract: We studied mixing in the initially separated binary mixture of liquid crystal and ternary mixtures of water/surfactant PEG system. In both systems the domains of one phase were by a much higher viscosity than the solvent matrix. We experimentally that during mixing these domains decrease size linearly with time without a visible change of the optical (i.e., without a rapid change of their compositions). Computer and a theoretical model explain quantitatively our experimental observations.
