Surface Chemistry of Surfactants and Polymers.


Surface Chemistry of Surfactants and Polymers

Bengt Kronberg, Krister Holmberg, and Bj|rn Lindman



479 pages




Kronberg, Holmberg, and Lindman present this volume on surface chemistry written for use as a reference by students and industrial chemists. The first several chapters provide a general introduction to the synthesis, applications, and health/environmental concerns regarding surfactants. Counter-ion binding and the hydrophobic effect are introduced, leading into discussion of phases, micelles, interfaces, self-assembly and adsorption dynamics of surfactants and polymers. Multi-component systems containing mixed surfactants, surfactants with polymers, and/or other components are the subject of the middle chapters. The book finishes with treatment of colloidal systems including emulsions, foams, and slurries, as well as the processes of wetting and hydrophobization, basic rheology, and some specific applications.
