In response to intensifying interest on surfactant research brought on by recent innovation, Structure-Performance Relationships in Surfactants, Second Edition examines novel developments in our understanding of the properties and performance of surfactants at air-liquid, liquid-liquid, and solid-liquid interfaces, highlighting seven new chapters and carefully updated material to reflect current trends. This edition presents new material on the adsorption of vesicle-forming surfactants at the air-water interface, fluorinated surfactants having two hydrophobic chains, surface-active properties of telomer-type surfactants having several hydrocarbon chains, and the association behavior of amphiphilic dendritic polymers, among many other topics.

Editorial Reviews

Journal of Surfactants and Detergents
...This book should be in the library of anyone doing research into the effects of surfactant structure on properties or applications and would be useful to the advanced surfactant technologist looking for ideas to...optimize formulations.
Chemistry & Industry
...contain[s]...interesting chapters on biosurfactants, ring-structured surfactants, and dimeric surfactants. "This the 70th volume in a series devoted to surfactant science, and those who know the other books will be aware of their completeness and quality. This book is no exception.
Discusses such aspects as theories of micelle formation and adsorption, the dynamics of surfactant solutions, the physicochemical properties of structured surfactants and emulsions, adsorption characteristics, preparing microparticles in reversed micelles, the quantitative approach to predicting micellar properties from surfactant molecular structure, the self-consistent field model of surfactants, the relationship between surface properties and structure at the air-liquid interface, and the mechanisms of visco-elastic surfactant systems and gel emulsions. Accessible to chemists from advanced undergraduate to professional levels. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
