Comment on "Wetting-induced formation of controllable monodisperse multiple emulsions in microfluidics" by N.-N. Deng et al.

In their recent work, Deng et al.[1] stated that the equilibrium topology of double droplets depends on the volumes of the immiscible segments (page 2, the text above eqn (1)). This statement was not verified by the experimental results in ref. 1 yet it was used in the discussion and interpretation of the data. We believe that it is important to make it clear that the volumes of the constituent segments do not determine the topology of double droplets. Such dependence would stand in clear contradiction to our recent findings [2] as well as to the previous studies by Torza and Mason [3] or Pannacci et al.[4] and might lead to confusion in the interpretation of experimental results concerning multiple emulsions.
