A new apparatus adopting the sessile drop technique has been designed to measure the ultralow interfacial tension between two liquids of a binary mixture. The equilibrium interfacial tension of the mixture of isobutyric acid and water has been determined near its upper critical solution temperature up to the value of 0.02 μN m-1.
