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.

The co-evolution of a strong theoretical framework alongside application of a range of sophisticated experimental tools engendered rapid advancement in the study of “giant micelles.” Beginning with Anacker and Debye’s 1951 experimental study of elongated micelles by light scattering and their subsequent theoretical inference that the thermodynamics of these structures would have to reflect an opposing force model, theory and experiment have progressed hand in hand. This progress, along with growing interest in the practical and industrial applications of these structures in cleansers, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, and energy production, demands a comprehensive, single-source reference to the current state-of-the-science. Drawing on the expertise of internationally known scientists, Giant Micelles: Properties and Applications summarizes the range of behaviors encountered in solutions of micelles and their applications in industrial processes. The book introduces theoretical aspects of the rheological behavior and formation of giant micelles from different viewpoints including molecular-level thermodynamic theory and computer simulations. It continues by focusing on the results of a variety of experimental studies using methods such as cryo-transmission electron microscopy, scattering techniques, phase diagrams, linear and non-linear rheology, and chemical relaxation. Illustrating the properties of giant micelles on solid surfaces, the book also considers systems of smart micelles that respond to external stimuli by a change of shape. The authors describe giant micelles formed from amphiphilic block copolymers as well as non-covalent polymers that exhibit similar rheological behavior to giant micelles. Finally, the chapters address current and emerging applications of giant micelles in oil and gas production, drag reduction, drug-delivery formulations, and personal care products such as shampoo. By gathering a range of information into one volume, Giant Micelles: Properties and Applications provides scientists with an essential reference on these fascinating materials and their emerging role in industrial application.

Keeping pace with explosive developments in the field, Colloidal Science of Flotation reviews and updates the fundamentals of the bubble-particle collection phenomenon using a self-consistent approach that helps readers understand the hydrodynamic aspects of bubble-particle collection. The authors examine bubble rise velocity, water velocity around air bubbles, the thinning of intervening liquid films, the stability of particle-bubble aggregates, and macroscopic processes in froth. They also survey the applicability of emerging technologies in industrial flotation deinking, wastewater treatment, flotation of plastics, and improvements in minerals and coal flotation.
