Dispersed aqueous solutions showing A) the emission spectra of crude oil (—), crude oil with fungal spores (–––), O/W emulsion (● ● ●) and O/W emulsion with fungal spores (–● – ● –); and B) the I365/I340 ratio of crude oil (1), crude oil with fungal spores (2), O/W emulsion (3), O/W emulsion with fungal spore (4), the I339/I326 ratio of O/W emulsion (5), O/W emulsion broken in presence of demulsifying agent (6) and O/W emulsion treated with MW irradiation at 60°C (7), (5, 6 y 7) data in ref. [3]. Conditions of fluorometric studies: λex = 290 nm, T = 25°C.
