This work focuses on the environmental availability and effects, toxicological properties and numerous applications of cationic surfactants, detaling the modern analytical processes by which this important class of compounds may be studied. It discusses the types of microorganisms that are susceptible or refractory to the actions of cationic agents.

Editorial Reviews

Advances in Colloid and Interface Science extremely valuable addition to the surfactant series...a well balanced book that is clearly written.
For chemists in environmental sciences and the detergent industry who have no previous knowledge about surfactants, outlines the environmental availability and effects, the toxicological properties, and the many applications of cationic surfactants. Also details the new analytic techniques used to study them. More a survey of the literature and methodology than a laboratory manual, though appropriate experimental procedures are described fully.
