Overview

This is the first single-volume handbook with the information a researcher needs to select the best rheology modifiers for his/her project. Information on 20 different types of rheology modifiers manufactured by 26 companies worldwide is described. These range from Acrylic Polymers to Xanthan Gum. This handbook was written because, in the authors' experience, the selection of a rheology modifier for specific applications is an arduous task. It requires researching the technical literature of numerous suppliers, contacting them for current information and recommendations, and paring the list of candidates from hundreds to a few dozen. This book will enable readers to easily identify the best candidates for an application with a minimum investment of time.

The book is divided into four sections. Part I reviews rheology fundamentals. Part II presents details on the products available from the 26 represented companies. Part III focuses on the selection of suitable rheology modifier candidates. Part IV is a formulary containing the contributions of the suppliers.

Rheology modifiers, contained in cleaning, pharmaceutical, and food products (e.g. whipped toppings), are materials that alter the flow of the fluid to which they are added. Drawing on their experience in the R&D departments of major chemical companies without any sourcebook to help identify the best candidates for applications, the authors developed this guide on some 20 different chemical types of modifiers from acrylic polymers to xanthan gum. Part I reviews basic rheology concepts and measurements. Part II lists products by type. Part III focuses on the process of matching modifiers to applications. Lastly, there is a formulary of 227 starting formulations arranged by industry, designed to show which modifiers are recommended for specific applications and how they are normally incorporated into a formulation. Appends lists of suppliers worldwide and a trade name directory. Lacks an index. Braun and Rosen are with a consulting firm in Norwich, NY. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
