This volume seeks to advance cost-effective methods using newly-developed surfactants. It summarizes data from physical, chemical, surface, detergency, cleaning, toxicity and environmental sources for designing new formulations of classic organic head-tail surfactants in response to increased environmental, toxicity, safety and performance demands.
Alkyl polyglycosides; nitrogen-containing specialty surfactants; sulfonated methyl esters; detergency properties of alkyldiphenyl oxide disulfonates; methyl ester ethoxylates; N-acyl ED3A chelating surfactants; surfactants for the prewash market; dry cleaning surfactants; specialty surfactants useful in softeners.
". . .goes well beyond reviewing the latest developments in the field. . .. . . .extensive. . .. . . .a worthy addition to a series of longstanding traditions."
