1st Edition

Polymer-Surfactant Systems

Edited By J.C.T. Kwak Copyright 1998

    "Chronicles recent advances in our knowledge of polymer-surfactant systems, combining authoritative reviews of new experimental methods, instrumentation, and applications with fundamental discussions of classical methodologies and surveys of specific properties."

    Applications of polymer-surfactant systems; phase behaviour of polymer-surfactant systems; the nature of polymer-surfactant interactions; models of polymer-surfactant complexation; NMR studies of polymer-surfactant systems; fluorescence methods in the study of polymer-surfactant systems; isothermal titration and temparature scanning calorimetric studies of polymer-surfacant systems; interactions of polymers and nonionic surfactants; polyelectrolyte-surfacant interactions - polymer hydrophobicity, surfactant aggregation number, and microstructure of the systems; solubilization of dyes by polymer-surfactant complexes.
