Touted as the new darling of the chemical industry, alkyl polyglycosides are gaining in popularity due to the fact that they are readily biodegradable, low-toxic, and made from renewable resources. Sugar-Based Surfactants compiles the most recent and relevant aspects of sugar-based surfactants, including self-association, phase behavior, and interfacial properties. Focusing on both colloidal and interfacial science, the book deals with the adsorption of surfactants in both the air-liquid and solid-liquid interfaces. It also covers new advances in surfactant science, such as the development of a family of potent surface active agents that are non-toxic, and thus usable in ubiquitous consumer productsThis ability is usually believed to be reflected in the surface dilational elasticity ... [ 6, 9, 14, 16, 38], although it was argued only recently that it is the surface viscosity rather than the surface elasticity that ... As a definite answer to this controversy can only be given by additional measurements at high frequencies (i.e. n agt; 100 Hz), anbsp;...
