Editorial Reviews

Full text of plenary and invited lectures and abstracts of oral and poster presentations comprise this proceedings volume representing the Eighth International Symposium on Surfactants in Solution, held in Gainesville, Florida, June 1990. Among the topics: phase equilibria in surfactant systems; microemulsions; micellar create effects; Langmuir- Blodgett films; photodegradation of surfactants catalyzed by a semiconductor for protection of the environment; kinetic stability of food emulsions; polymer/surfactant interaction.
