In the tradition of the popular first edition, this revised and expanded edition offers a comprehensive and practical account of analysis methods for determining and understanding commercially important surfactants — individually and in compounds. Combining a complete review of the literature with a variety of evaluation procedures and the specifications for commercial products, this reference explores the key stages and latest developments for surfactant applications.

Analysis of Surfactants describes the makeup and provides structural drawings for an array of commercial surfactants; presents the accepted methodology for determining active agents and impurities in surfactants; discusses spectroscopic and chromatographic methods of characterization and concentration used in the analytical chemistry of surfactants; reviews techniques for identifying surfactants in the environment; and much more.

From the Preface: “...In order to keep the size of the volume within practical limits, I have allowed myself to be more critical in the second edition than the first. Published methodology is not taken at face value, but is put into the context of previous work and evaluated in light of my own thirty years of experience in industrial chemistry. Techniques that are only of academic interest are covered in much less detail than those that have immediate application. The purpose remains to give the chemist a ready reference for deciding how best to approach the analytical chemistry challenges that present themselves in the world of surfactants.”

Target Audience: Physical, surface, colloid, and oil chemists; analytical, research, and quality assurance chemists in the detergents, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics industries; regulatory and food scientists; and upper-level students in these disciplines.
