Design and Selection of Performance Surfactants is the resource for clear, informative, in-depth reviews of the most topical areas of surfactant science and technology. This is the second volume in an annual series already recognized as an essential resource for major developments in the field.
Topics in this volume include spontaneous polymerization in organized micellar media, the catalytic and kinetic effects in ethoxylation processes, narrow and secondary alcohol ethoxylates, plus the latest advances in flurosurfactants and carbohydrate-derived surfactants.
Further readings cover the cutting-edge, microbial and enzymatic production of biosurfactants advances in the computer modeling of surfactants. International contributors detail the latest applications in oil drilling, floor polishes, and food emulsification.
Science and industry are constantly refining research and finding new applications for surface chemical technology. Reading Design and Selection of Performance Surfactants is the most efficient and accessible way for chemists, researchers, and manufacturers to stay abreast of the latest developments.
