More About This Textbook


The focus of this volume is on surface active agents and their applications, including: coatings, detergents, water treatment, and petroleum recovery. It is an update on this area of significant industrial importance and includes reviews of work done in areas such as ethelyene oxide block copolymers, acrylic acid block copolymers, living free radical polymerizations, HMPAM and HEURs in flow, and fluorescence studies of associative thickeners, among others.
