"Using a minimum of mathematics, this book clearly describes the properties and applications of surfactants. It explains the mechanisms by which these materials operate in interfacial processes such as foaming, wetting, emulsion formation, and detergency, and shows the correlations between a surfactant's chemical structure and its action." Surfactants and Interfacial Phenomena, Third Edition provides a resource for industrial chemists and a text for classroom use, and is a tool for understanding and applying the latest information on surfactants.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Written by Milton J. Rosen and Joy T. Kunjappu, two leading authorities in the field, Surfactants and Interfacial Phenomena, Fourth Edition is an unparalleled tool for understanding and applying the latest information on surfactants, and includes unique data tables and end-of-chapter problems designed to enhance the reader’s understanding.”  (Chimie Nouvelle, 1 March 2013)

“The book is recommended to all who want to enter the interesting and yet further growing field of surfactants at interfaces.  It can serve as textbook for graduated students attending courses on surfactants and their applications. The book is also excellent for experts working in fundamental and applied research as they can find the main principles of the modification of interfaces via the impact of surfactants.”  (Tenside Surfactants Detergents, 1 May 2012)
