Micropatterned microfluidics: dendronized fluorosurfactants for highly stable emulsions  

We design surfactants that form robust microdroplets with improved high stability (in PCR thermal cycling) and resistance to inter-droplet transfer (of fluorescent dye salts, drugs, etc) using dendritic oligo-glycerol-based surfactants with a high degree of inter-and intramolecular hydrogen bonding.
