This book is the premier text on the properties and applications of surfactants. The third edition is completely updated and revised, including new information on gemini surfactants (a new type of powerful surfactant), superspreading (or superwetting) by aqueous surfactant solutions of highly hydrophobic surfaces (important in agricultural applications), and dynamic surface tension (an important interfacial property not covered in the first two editions).* Clearly explains the mechanisms by which surfactants operate in interfacial processes* Uses a minimum of mathematics in explanation
