"Serves as a comprehensive introduction to the preparation, uses, and physical chemistry of silicone surfactants—focusing on silicone polyoxyalkylene copolymers that are surface active in both aqueous and nonaqueous systems. Covers applications in the manufacture of polyurethane foam, coatings, wetting agents, fabric finishes, and polymer surface modifiers."

Editorial Reviews

Molecular Chemistry and Physics
...the book offers a good summary of the field for all scientists who are interested in synthesis, properties, and the application of silicone surfactants.
Applied Organometallic Chemistry a timely description of a broad and growing area of surfactant science....written mainly by authors from industry, who provide useful insights into the many applications of surfactant materials. "...a good review of the current state of silicone surfactants and will be of use to all in the field.
Twelve chapters introduce the preparation, uses, and physical chemistry of silicone surfactants, focusing on silicone polyoxyalkylene copolymers that are surface active in aqueous systems. After an introductory chapter, the volume covers the synthesis and analysis of silicon surfactants, and details their surface activity and aggregation behavior. The next five papers discuss specific applications: polyurethane foam manufacture, personal care, coatings, fabric finishes and polymer surface modification, foam control, and agricultural adjuvancy. The final two chapters deal with two areas of recent activity<-->the unusual setting behavior of the trisiloxane surfactants and the ternary phase behavior of mixtures of silicone surfactants with water and silicone oils.
