Magnetic soap research. Professor Julian Eastoe working on research into the use of magnetic surfactants and emulsions. Iron was dissolved in liquid surfactants, creating a soap that could be controlled by magnets. The structure of the clumps (micelles) formed by the soap when added to water, was then investigated using neutron scattering. Magnetic soaps have potential applications in removing cleaning products from a system, and aiding in cleaning up oil spills. Photographed in 2012, at the University of Bristol, UK.
