In this paper, the petroleum resin modification process by oxidation with hydrogen peroxide under phase transfer catalysis has been studied. As a result of oxidation petroleum resins with various oxygen-containing groups (carboxyl, hydroperoxide and epoxy groups) have been obtained. The possibility of using oxidized resins as emulsifiers to stabilize oil-in-water emulsions has been shown. The optimum mixing ratio water/petroleum resin has been determined, and stable oil-in-water emulsions with modified petroleum resins have been obtained. The dependence of the emulsion stability on the acid number of the oxidized resins included in the composition of the obtained emulsions has been determined. The effect of the composition on the rheological characteristics of the emulsions: dynamic viscosity, shear stress, and the shear rate have been identified.
