Surface active agents are used as process aids in the production of polymers as additives to impart or modify polymer properties and in the formulation and further processing of polymeric systems for a variety of applications. In all these uses, the surfactants are used as effect chemicals , to impart specific performance characteristics or properties to the base polymer or to enhance its performance when formulated for a specific end use.

This volume focuses on those surfactant areas incorporating the greatest number of supplier and user companies. Authors have been selected from leading industrial and academic laboratories around the world.

This is a book for surfactant researchers and for manufacturers and users of surfactants: in particular, surfactant chemists; analytical chemists; environmental chemists; users of surfactant formulations in the fields of speciality chemicals, polymers and detergents; and health and safety personnel.
