Oil and water can mix under the right conditions, scientists say

Science
Aug. 28 (UPI) -- Is any cliche safe? New research suggests oil and water can combine when conditions are just right.When oil and water are mixed under extreme pressure, oil molecules were absorbed into the solution. Researchers were able to mix water and methane inside small containers subjected to the amount pressure present on the deep ocean floor.Methane is often used in experiments as a standing for substances with hydrophobic -- or water-repelling -- molecules, like oil.The latest experiments -- detailed this week in the journal Science Advances -- can help scientists understand how chemicals interact under extreme conditions, like those found deep inside the Earth or distant planets.To achieve extreme pressure levels, researchers squeezed molecules between the anvil points of two dia...
