9780854046355: Chemical Formulation: An Overview of Surfactant Based Chemical Preparations Used in Everyday Life (RSC Paperbacks)

Chemical formulation can be traced back to Stone Age times, when hunter-gatherers attached flint arrowheads to shafts using a resin made from birch bark and beeswax. Today, formulated preparations are part of everyday life. Formulations based on surfactants are by far the most prolific, from shampoos and shower gels to emulsion paint and polishes. This book discusses the chemical technology of surfactants and related chemicals, using over forty examples of everyday products. Some basic theory on surface chemistry, molecular interactions and surfactant function is included to aid understanding. Chemical Formulation: An Overview of Surfactant-based Preparations Used in Everyday Life then goes on to look at wider aspects such as surfactant manufacture, raw materials, environment, sustainability, analysis and testing. Throughout, common chemical names are used for formulation chemicals, further aiding the readability of the book. Bridging the gap between theory and application, this book will be invaluable to anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of applied chemistry, including students on A level, BTEC and technician courses. It will also be of benefit to those new to the formulation industry.

Review:

"... deserves a place in the library where it can be read by new staff. Nor will it be out of place in a public library by virtue of the information it contains about the products that we all live with on a daily basis." (Lipid Technology Newsletter, p 115, October 2003)

"It should be read, among others, by those who make and handle these materials, and by environmentalists who are concerned with the complexities of the world in which we live." (Chemistry & Industry, 17 November 2003, p 29)

"... will appeal in particular to technologists who do not have chemistry as their main discipline ... a valuable addition to the surfactant-based product formulators' bookshelf." (Chemistry in Britain, December 2003, p 34)
