Surfactants are used throughout industry as components in a huge range of formulated products or as effect chemicals in the production or processing of other materials. A detailed understanding of the basis of their activity is required by all those who use surfactants, yet the new graduate or postgraduate chemist or chemical engineer will generally have little or no experience of how and why surfactants work.

"This book is designed to give practical help to those involved with the use of surface active agents (or surfactants). It is intended particularly for new graduate and post-graduate chemists and chemical engineers at the beginning of their industrial careers and for those who, in later life, become involved with surfactants for the first time. The book is a straightforward and practical survey of the chemistry of surfactants and their uses." CAB Abstracts "Every lab needs a book on surfactants and this is a very good one. It is well edited with a uniformity of presentation, well illustrated with excellent tables and diagrams, and well referenced. With a hard cover, robustly bound, and reasonably priced, it is good value." Surface Coatings Australia, December 2006
