Summary

Surfactant technology represents a vibrant and challenging area of physico-chemical science - exact mechanisms of well-established processes are not often fully understood, thus creating continued debate. Journals are available which briefly report on the range of advances in this area, and there are books focusing on specific classes of surfactant or their defined end-uses. However, the Annual Surfactants Review series presents important recent developments in surfactant technology in a clear, informative, and thorough style, fully appraising the latest developments for all those interested in surface chemistry.
New Products and Applications in Surfactant Technology, Volume 1 of Annual Surfactants Review, covers new products and applications in surfactant technology, including detailed chapters on cationic, polymeric, and "hybrid" fluorocarbon/hydrocarbon surfactants and bio-surfactants as well as esters of alpha-sulphonated fatty acids.
Discussions include:
  • Production, physico-chemical properties, and applications of these products
  • A Japanese perspective on surfactants for personal care products
  • The use of surfactant systems for the environmental remediation of contaminated land
  • The biodegradability, aquatic toxicity and oestrogenic activity of alkylphenol ethoxylates related to health, safety, and environmental concerns
  • The physical behavior of surfactants in solutions
  • Multiple emulsions
    This volume serves as a primary resource for surfactant chemists; manufacturers and users of surfactants; analytical chemists, environmental chemists; health and safety personnel; and professionals working with surfactant formulations in specialty chemicals, polymers, and detergents.
