The correspondence between the equilibrium phase behavior of oil-water−surfactant mixtures and the macroemulsion type and stability is examined. Both the phase behavior and emulsion stability are argued to be dependent on the bending elasticity of the surfactant monolayer at the oil−water interface. At positive spontaneous curvatures, O/W emulsions are stable; at negative spontaneous curvatures W/O emulsions are stable, whereas, in the balanced state of the surfactant film, an emulsion break usually occurs for a wide variety of systems. To explain the effect of the monolayer bending properties on the macroemulsion stability, the thermally activated rupture of emulsion films is theoretically studied. We consider emulsion films covered by saturated surfactant monolayers, with strong lateral interactions among the adsorbed surfactant molecules. The monolayer at the edge of a nucleation hole in the emulsion film is strongly curved; the bending energy penalty involved leads to a strong dependence of the coales...
