Nice article!
I've learned a lot about emulsion from it.

Ultrasonication did break some of my emulsions (on a laboratory scale), but can as well be ineffective or make matters worse.

I had more emulsions with a basic aqueous phase than with an acidic aqueous phase. Acidification did help in some cases to break the emulsion (which might have been caused by traces of long-chain carboxylic acid anions - soap).
