“Oleocolloids” is used here as a term to represent a broad range of oil-continuous soft matter systems (Fig. 1) comprising colloids at an interface of complex fluids and phase-separated states of matter. Some examples include oleogels; biphasic colloids where water droplets or air bubbles are dispersed in an oil continuous medium (indirect emulsions and oleofoams, respectively); complex colloids such as foamed oleogels and oil-water-oil (O/W/O) emulsions; and layered structural matrixes embedding a large volume of liquid oil (oleofilms).
