Consultant Myers still has the beginner and non-specialist in mind in this edition of his introduction to working with surfactants in model and practical systems but also updates chapters and adds new ones to reflect recent developments and includes illustrative problems at the end of each chapter. He covers the organic chemistry if surfactants, fluid surfaces and interfaces, surfactants in solution in monolayers and micelles, higher-level surfactants structures (such as liquid crystals, continuous biphases and microemulsions), solubilization and micellar and phase transfer catalysts, polymeric surfactants and interactions, foams and liquid aerosols, emulsions, solid surfaces and dispersions.
