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.

Editorial Reviews

Colloid and Polymer Science
...recommended for readers who want to have a deeper insight into the field of surfactants.
Pinpoints preparation methods, physicochemical properties, environmental impact, and applications of newly developed surfactants. Contains 11 chapters, each devoted to one surfactant type, focusing on surfactants that are not yet well established on the market but are not merely research curiosities. Specific subjects include alkyl polyglycosides, novel cationic surfactants from arginine, esterquats, silicone surfactants, dimeric (gemini) surfactants, enzymatic synthesis, polymerizable surfactants, and cleavable surfactants.
