In this work, we present rheological data on capillary foams. We study the viscoelastic properties of capillary foams by conducting different oscillatory and rotational tests. We compare and discuss our observations on capillary foam properties to the rheological properties reported for traditional aqueous foams and other soft materials. We observe that capillary foams, although significantly different in architecture and composition, have some similarities with conventional foams in their viscoelasticity. Lastly, we discuss, on the basis of the observed properties, the implications of these results and potential applications for capillary foams in tuning of processes and formulation of new foam products.
