Surfactants and Interfacial Phenomena [NOOK Book]

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. ...

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"..includes the progress in a number of important areas of surfactant chemistry and…a number of areas not included in the previous edition." (Energy Sources, June 2005)

"…a clear, concise tutorial on the fundamentals and applications of surfactants...a worthwhile investment, especially for newcomers to the field…" (Polymer News, May 2005)

"...provides readers with a very easy way to find specific literature for their own systems...for anyone needing to learn more about surfactants or applying general colloidal processes." (CHOICE, January 2005)
