Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Reviews recent developments in the behavior of surfactant- modified water-soluble polymers in aqueous solutions, their use in biodegradable and biological systems, and the development of unique hydrogels and new non-associative water-soluble polymers. For chemists and engineers in personal care products, coating, detergents, petroleum recovery, and water treatment. In addition to the hydrogels, the 25 papers cover biocompatible and biodegradable and conventional water-soluble polymer; and the general concepts of associating polymers and the performance in solution of specific species.
