Overview

The definitive resource on the properties and applications of surfactants, fully revised and updated

The three previous editions of Surfactants and Interfacial Phenomena, written by Milton J. Rosen, PhD, a widely known expert in the field, were prime texts on the properties and applications of surfactants. They provide readers with an easily accessible look at how surfactants operate in interfacial processes (such as foaming, wetting, emulsion formation, and detergency), and show the correlation between a surfactant's chemical structure and its action. Incorporating a minimum of mathematics, this user-friendly resource is designed for both professional chemists and students looking to learn about surfactant science.

Fully revised and updated, this Fourth Edition includes three additional chapters covering surfactants in biology, biotechnology, nanotechnology, and molecular modeling with surfactant systems. In addition, the book includes new or expanded information on the environmental effects of surfactants, zwitterionics, the mechanism of adsorption and aggregation, the rheology of surfactant solutions, solubilization, foaming and antifoaming in organic media, microemulsions, the limitations of the DLVO theory, biosurfactants and enzymes in detergent formulations, and much more.

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.
