Gemini Surfactants Synthesis, Interfacial and Solution-Phase Behavior, and Applications

Edited By Raoul Zana, Jiding Xia Copyright 2004

    Generating much interest in both academic and scientific circles, Gemini Surfactants gathers the most up-to-date research in gemini surfactantproduction and demonstrates how their propertiesand performance can revolutionize the current industrial application of these surfactants. It surveys the state of special gemini surfactants, inc
