520    This SpringerBrief provides an overview of ultrasonic 
       emulsification and an update on recent advances in 
       developing stable emulsions for the creation of novel 
       drugs and functional foods, with a focus on bioactive 
       delivery in these products. Emulsification is the process 
       of combining two or more immiscible liquids to form a semi
       -stable mixture. These two liquids generally consist of an
       organic (oil) phase and an aqueous (water) phase that is 
       stabilized by the addition of an emulsifier. Most common 
       emulsions are of the oil-in-water (O/W) type, but can also
       be of water-in-oil (W/O) or even multiple emulsion types 
       (i.e. double emulsions) in the form of water-in-oil-in-
       water (W/O/W) or oil-in-water-in-oil (O/W/O) phases. The 
       formation of an emulsion requires input of energy to 
       distribute the disperse phase in the continuous phase in 
       small-sized droplets that are able to resist instability. 
       There is great interest in the use of ultrasound to 
       produce emulsions, as it is able to do so relatively 
       efficiently and effectively compared to existing 
       techniques such as rotor stator, high-pressure 
       homogenization and microfluidization. The interaction of 
       ultrasound with the hydrocolloids and biopolymers that are
       often used to stabilize emulsions can offer advantages 
       such as improved stability or greater control of formed 
       droplet size distributions
