This book gives practical, on-the-job guidance as well as detailed theoretical background on a wide range of occurrences including hydrophobic foams, adsorption of surfactants/polymers on solids from nonpolar media and lubrication. Extensive end of chapter references enumerate the most relevant and current publications on the topics discussed. Providing over 130 instructive figures, more than 100 equations and useful graphs and diagrams.
