Dear Luis:

Thankyou for your reply. My concern over the absolute value of the quantum yield was that the emission intensity depends on the radiative rate constant for singlet oxygen decay which is solvent dependent. Unless your microemulsion matched the environment of the sensitizer location AND that of the bulk phase then it is extremely difficult to make the extrapolation. My original comment about your results in W/O and O/W was that the apparent quantum yield had changed simply because the nature of the bulk phase had changed.
