The aim of this work was to study the generation of monodispersed droplets at high production rates using novel asymmetric microchannel (MC) array fabricated on a silicone plate . Monodispersed droplets are preferable both in fundamental studies and industrial applications. Appearance, rheology, stability against Oswald ripening and creaming, and the suitability of emulsion droplets as precursors to the production of solids are strongly influenced by their size uniformity.
