In a droplet microfluidics, the generation and stablization of droplets are both important for their applications in chemical or biological fields. In this work, we summarize the surfactants typically used for creation of oil-in-water or water-in-oil droplets. The special requirements for surfactants in stablizing droplets duirng application,such as thermal, biocompatible, ionic properties are discusssed. Moreover,the colloidosomes with nanoparticles as stabilizers for droplets will also been discussed.
