"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."

Overview

"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.
