Bio based Surfactants and Detergents: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications Second Edition covers biosurfactant synthesis and applications and how to reduce manufacturing and purification costs, impurities and by-products. Fully revised, updated and with over 30% new content, including new chapters on bio based surfactants in biomedical applications, detergents, food and pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and nanotechnology, the book reflects the latest developments in bio based surfactant science. Providing use-case scenarios to guide readers in efficient and effective bio based surfactant application, along with strategies for research into new practical applications, this book, written by an international team of experts, educates readers from a biorefinery-based perspective.
- Completely revised, including five all new chapters
- Describes new and emerging bio based surfactants and new trends for the synthesis and development of bio based surfactants (including green labeling)
- Addresses chemistry, biotechnology, biomedical, environmental and engineering disciplines
- Presents the entire lifecycle of bio based surfactants, including feedstock selection, synthesis and chemical medication, purification, application and biodegradability

Douglas G. Hayes is a Professor of Biosystems Engineering at the University of Tennessee (UT). Hayes received his Bachelors of Science and PhD in Chemical Engineering at Iowa State University (1986) and the University of Michigan (1991), respectively, and served as a postdoctoral research chemist at the USDA/ARS/NCAUR (Peoria, IL) from 1991 to 1994. He served as a faculty member in the Department of Chemical and Materials Engineering at the University of Alabama in Huntsville before joining UT in 2004. He also hold an Adjunct professorship in the UT Department of Chemical and Biomolecular engineering, guest professorships at Wuhan Polytechnic University and Jinan University in China, and is a UT-Oak Ridge National Laboratory Joint Faculty. Professor Hayes is a Senior Associate Editor (SAE) for the Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society and an AE for Journal of Surfactants and Detergents. He has served AOCS as an officer for the Biotechnology Division (Chair from 2014 to 2015), Chair of the AOCS Professional Educators' Common Interest Group, and is a member of the AOCS Books and Special Publications Committee. He has published over 65 articles in peer-reviewed publications, 15 book chapters, and one edited book. His research interests include applied biocatalysis, biobased surfactants and polymers, soft matter colloidal systems, and small-angle scattering methods.
