A general introduction to surfactants, surface activity, andsurfactant applications Important advances in the tools available for studying the activityof surfactants has significantly increased scientific understandingof interfaces at the molecular level. However, there is still muchto be learned. In this Third Edition of the successful classic,author and expert Drew Myers combines the latest informationavailable in the field of surfactants with his original, accessibletext on the subject. Now fully updated to reflect recent developments in working withsurfactants in both model and practical systems, the Third Editionof Surfactant Science and Technology provides a solid introductionto the field of surfactant science. Written especially forbeginners and nonspecialists who would like a practical but notnecessarily comprehensive knowledge of the field, this clear,cogent text conveys the most fundamental and useful concepts ofsurfactant action and application. New chapters bring readers up todate on current biological and medical applications of surfactants,as well as applications in food science, cosmetics, and otherareas. In addition to new chapters, Surfactant Science and Technologyincludes illustrative problems at the end of each chapter. Theseproblems explain concepts discussed and stimulate imaginativesolutions on the part of the reader. A helpful bibliography ofsupplementary resources for readers who desire more detail has alsobeen included. Surfactant Science and Technology, Third Edition is an invaluableresource for surface and polymer chemists, chemical and industrialengineers, and a wide range of chemistry students.

Surfactant research explores the forces responsible for surfactant assembly and the critical industrial, medical, and personal applications, including viscosity control, microelectronics, drug stabilization, drug delivery, cosmetics, enhanced oil recovery, and foods. Surfactant Science and Technology: Retrospects and Prospects, "a Festschrift in honor of Dr. Kash Mittal," provides a broad perspective with chapters contributed by leaders in the fields of surfactant-based physical, organic, and materials chemistries. Many of the authors participated in a special symposium in Melbourne, Australia, honoring Kash Mittal’s 100th edited book at the 18th Surfactants in Solution (SIS) meeting. Each chapter provides an overview of a specific research area, with discussions on past, present, and future directions. The book is divided into six parts. Part I reviews the evolution of theoretical models for surfactant self-assembly, and introduces a model for interpreting ion-specific effects on aggregate properties. Part II focuses on interactions of surfactant solutions with solid supports; uses contact angles to understand hydrophobic/hydrophilic changes in a lipid layer; uses surface tension to understand molecular arrangements at interfaces; reviews spreading phenomena; discusses pattern formation on solid surfaces; and applies tensiometry to probe flavor components of espresso. Part III discusses novel DNA-based materials, multifunctional poly(amino acid)s–based graft polymers for drug delivery, and polymeric surfactants for stabilizing suspensions and emulsions. Part IV introduces farm-based biosurfactants from natural products and "greener" biosurfactants from bacteria. Part V explores lyotropic liquid crystals and their applications in triggered drug release; microemulsion properties and controlled drug release; the role of hydrotopes in formulations and in enhancing solubilization in liquid crystals; the potential of ionic liquids to generate tunable and selective reaction media; and provides an overview of stimuli-responsive surfactants. Focusing on emulsions, Part VI reviews the design of emulsion properties for various commercial applications, the role of surfactants in the oil and gas industries, and surfactant mechanisms for soil removal via microemulsions and emulsification.

Because they are biodegradable and work well in low energy separations, surfactants are an active area of interest in separations science. This book covers surfactant-based separations for the chemical and biochemical process industries and analytical chemistry. It includes discussion of widely used processes and novel techniques, such as, surfactant-enhanced ultrafiltration, ground water and soil remediation, surfactant absorption and flotation processes, extraction processes, recycling of paper and plastics using surfactant, and analytical separations using surfactants.
