Book Description

Focuses on novel techniques and reviews established methods for surfactant-based separation processes that can be widely applied in industry. Describes new extraction techniques, micellar-enhanced ultrafiltration and admicellar chromatography, protein extraction using reverse micelles, surfactant-en
