Surfactant Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Novel Surfactants
Preparation, Applications, and Biodegradability
Second edition
edited by Krister Holmberg

Extensively revised and expanded, Novel Surfactants discusses the synthesis, purification, properties, and potential applications of popular and emerging surfactant compounds and systems—reflecting current research trends in green surfactants, the production of surfactants using biotechnological methods, and surfactants based on natural building blocks.

Contains five new chapters analyzing aspects of natural surfactants — examining surfactants produced by microorganisms, surfactant types based on sugar as hydrophilic building blocks, and surfactant classes based on fatty acids as hydrophobic building blocks.

Novel Surfactants considers

  • surfactants produced by enzymes and microorganisms
  • the environmental impact of surfactants
  • the use of renewable raw materials as surfactant building blocks
  • the preparation, biodegradation, toxicology, single- and multicomponent phase behavior, and dilute solution properties of various surfactants
  • recent developments in the pharmaceutical, manufacturing, cosmetic, and food industries
