Surfactants are used throughout industry as components in a huge range of formulated products or as effect chemicals in the production or processing of other materials. A detailed understanding of the basis of their activity is required by all those who use surfactants, yet the new graduate or postgraduate chemist or chemical engineer will generally have little or no experience of how and why surfactants work. Chemistry & Technology of Surfactants is aimed at new graduate or postgraduate level chemists and chemical engineers at the beginning their industrial careers and those in later life who become involved with surfactants for the first time. The book is a straightforward and practical survey of the chemistry of surfactants and their uses, providing a basic introduction to surfactant theory, information on the various types of surfactant and some application details. This will allow readers to build onto their scientific education the concepts and principles on which the successful use of surfactants, across a wide range of industries, is based.

In sharp contrast to recent works that deal with classical surface phenomena, Introduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis is unique in emphasizing the modern concepts of surface chemistry and catalysis uncovered by molecular level studies of surfaces over the past two decades. This important new book reveals our current molecular level understanding of surface phenomena and its relation to macroscopic surface properties. It focuses on the properties of solid-gas and solid-vacuum interfaces, because most of the results of modern surface science studies on the molecular level come from the scrutiny of these interfaces. The opening chapter reviews the nature of various surfaces and interfaces encountered in everyday life, the concept of adsorption, and the surface science techniques used to obtain much of the available information on the properties of surfaces. After concise discussion of the structure of clean and adsorbate-covered surfaces, the book probes the equilibrium thermodynamic properties of surfaces and interfaces, placing special emphasis on surface segregation - a major phenomenon in surface chemistry. In its subsequent discussion, Introduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis treats such important areas as energy transfer during gas-surface interactions, elementary surface reaction steps, adsorption, surface diffusion, and desorption. The book goes on to examine the electrical properties of surfaces, with coverage of such major areas as the surface space charge, surface ionization, and the excitation of valence and inner shell electrons. The unique character of the surface chemical bond - spotlighted in recent surface science studies - is then explored, with aparticular emphasis on adsorbate-substrate and adsorbate-adsorbate interactions. What follows is singularly in-depth coverage of surface catalysis, including a major conceptual review. Here Introduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis establishes our current understanding of catalysis, through case histories involving ammonia synthesis, carbon monoxide hydrogenation, and platinum-catalyzed hydrocarbon conversion. The book concludes with discussion of the mechanical properties of surfaces, highlighting the special importance of the buried interface. Among the topics covered are adhesion and tribological properties, friction, crack formation, and lubrication. Enhanced by review sections and problem sets in each chapter, Introduction to Surface Chemistry and Catalysis can serve as a major text for students of physical sciences and engineering. Its stand-alone chapters can also be used as supplementary reading in courses in general science, thermodynamics, crystal structures, chemical bonding, kinetics, solid state chemistry, and solid state physics. In addition, the book also works as a highly useful reference for scientists and engineers in need of data and concepts related to the properties of surfaces and interfaces.

Surfactants and Interfacial Phenomena Milton J. Rosen Bridging the gap between purely theoretical aspects of surface chemistry and the purely empirical experience of the industrial technologist, this book applies theoretical surface chemistry to understanding the action of surfactants in modifying interfacial phenomena. It surveys the structural types of commercially available surfactants and discusses interfacial phenomena, the physicochemical principles underlying the action of surfactants in each phenomenon, and the effect of structural changes in the surfactants and environmental changes on their action. Tables of data on various interfacial properties of surfactants, compiled and calculated from the latest scientific literature, are included. 1978 304 pp. An Introduction to Clay Colloid Chemistry, 2nd Ed. H. van Olphen This book provides valuable guidance in research and design efforts by giving a clear understanding of principles and concepts of colloid chemistry as applied to clay systems. Updated and enlarged, this edition includes new information on surface characterization and adsorption mechanisms; recent results in the area of clay-organic interaction--the intercalation and intersalation of kaolinite minerals; and increased attention to the possible role of clays in biological evolution. 1977 318 pp. Physicochemical Processes for Water Quality Control Walter J. Weber, Jr. Focusing on physicochemical rather than biological processes, this book presents a comprehensive treatise on the treatment of municipal and industrial water and wastewater. All of the physicochemical processes important to municipal and industrial water and wastewater treatment--coagulation, filtration, membrane processes, chemical oxidation, and others--are included and each is covered thoroughly from principle through application. To maintain a high level of expertise, contributions have been incorporated from specialists actively involved in research or engineering applications in each area considered. 1972 640 pp.

A new, definitive perspective of electrokinetic and colloid transport processes Responding to renewed interest in the subject of electrokinetics, Electrokinetic and Colloid Transport Phenomena is a timely overview of the latest research and applications in this field for both the beginner and the professional. An outgrowth of an earlier text (by coauthor Jacob Masliyah), this self-contained reference provides an up-to-date summary of the literature on electrokinetic and colloid transport phenomena as well as direct pedagogical insight into the development of the subject over the past several decades. A distinct departure from standard colloid science monographs, Electrokinetic and Colloid Transport Phenomena presents the most salient features of the theory in a simple and direct manner, allowing the book to serve as a stepping-stone for further learning and study. In addition, the book uniquely discusses numerical simulation of electrokinetic problems and demonstrates the use of commercial finite element software for solving these multiphysics problems. Among the topics covered are: * Mathematical preliminaries * Colloidal systems * Electrostatics and application of electrostatics * Electric double layer * Electroosmosis and streaming potential * Electrophoresis and sedimentation potential * London-Van der Waals forces and the DLVO theory * Coagulation and colloid deposition * Numerical simulation of electrokinetic phenomena * Applications of electrokinetic phenomena Because this thorough reference does not require advanced mathematical knowledge, it enables a graduate or a senior undergraduate student approaching the subject for the first time to easily interpret the theories. On the other hand, the application of relevant mathematical principles and the worked examples are extremely useful to established researchers and professionals involved in a wide range of areas, including electroosmosis, streaming potential, electrophoretic separations, industrial practices involving colloids and complex fluids, environmental remediation, suspensions, and microfluidic systems.
