Overview

Extensively revised and expanded, this timely reference discusses the synthesis, properties, and potential applications of popular and emerging surfactant compounds and systems. This reference reflects current research trends in green surfactants, the production of surfactants using biotechnological methods, and surfactants based on natural building blocks. Offering nearly 2000 valuable references, the Second Edition contains five new chapters analyzing aspects of natural surfactants, and examines surfactants produced by microorganisms, surfactant types based on sugar as hydrophilic building block, and surfactant classes based on fatty acids as hydrophobic building block.
