Surfactants play an important role in many human endeavors, ranging from consumer products (cosmetics, foods, and powdered soaps) to many aspects of biology and pharmaceuticals. This book presents researchers with the basic principles governing phase behavior of surfactants, the relationship between phase behavior and molecular structure, and the various ways in which this information can be applied. Coverage includes qualitative concepts and relationships between phase science and thermodynamics, as well as how this information can be used to describe surfactant systems.

The author has successfully accomplished his objective of transferring personal research experience to his readers. This book, which compiles extensive experimental information and the associated knowledge, is particularly usefulfor researchers working with surfactant systems, and it is an essential addition both to their personal libraries and to institutional libraries which service specialized research. --Juan H. Vera, McGill University, JOURNAL OF AMERICAN CHEMISTRY SOCIETY This is a remarkable book. It contains an excellent account of the phase behaviour of surface active agents, in both aqueous binary and ternary systems....This book is well written, and the authors mastery of the subject is clearly evident. --CHEMISTRY IN BRITAIN
