Rosanna Zubiate, column editor
Milton J. Rosen. Surfactants and interfacial phenomena. Second Edition.

"This new edition will make surfactant science even more accessible to you in your research efforts. After introducing the various structural types of commercial surfactants and their properties and applications, Rosen covers adsorption at interfaces and micellization using simplified physical chemical theory. There are extensive tables of data to show the effect of surfactant structure on properties and performance. New to this edition is a chapter on molecular interactions and synergism in mixtures of surfactants which reflects Rosen's pioneering work in the lab."
