Description - Microemulsions by Cosima Stubenrauch
Although first described by Winsor in 1954, the chemistry and
technology of microemulsions attracts considerable research
interest. Until relatively recently, microemulsions were not used
in large scale applications as their phase behaviour and
microstructure were not well understood and large amounts of
surfactant were needed for their formulation. With increased
understanding of their behaviour and significantly improved methods
for formulating and tuning their properties, microemulsions are
becoming increasingly useful in a range of industrial and research
Covering both the advances that have enabled improved understanding
of microemulsions, and the applications in a range of industrial
and research settings, and written by a first class team of
contributors, this book will be essential reading for anyone using,
or considering using microemulsions in the course of their work.
Written for research chemists, technologists and engineers in the
fine, specialty chemicals and polymer industries, and those in
university or government laboratories, this book will be
particularly valuable to those early on in their careers.
