This indispensable guide will equip the reader with a thorough understanding of the field of foaming chemistry. Assuming only basic theoretical background knowledge, the book provides a straightforward introduction to the principles and properties of foams and foaming surfactants. It discusses the key ideas that underpin why foaming occurs, how it can be avoided and how different degrees of antifoaming can be achieved, and covers the latest test methods, including laboratory and industrial developed techniques. Detailing a variety of different kinds of foams, from wet detergents and food foams, to polymeric, material and metal foams, it connects theory to real-world applications and recent developments in foam research. Combining academic and industrial viewpoints, this book is the definitive stand-alone resource for researchers, students and industrialists working on foam technology, colloidal systems in the field of chemical engineering, fluid mechanics, physical chemistry, and applied physics.Read more
- Addresses the basic properties through to the most cutting-edge developments in foam research
- Clearly illustrated diagrams aid the understanding of the more complex issues
- Written by an internationally renowned researcher with over 50 years' experience in the field

'Bubble and Foam Chemistry covers the rarely discussed physical chemistry of liquid foams, such as why they form and how they can be measured and prevented … The book is full of illustrations, which are instructive for those involved in the field.' J. Allison, CHOICE
22nd May 2017 by JOCarnali
An authoritative and comprehensive treatment of this important field. Filled with figures and charts which illustrate and expand the exposition, and very extensively referenced. An indispensable guide for graduate students and professionals coming into any of the technical areas dealing with foams. Veteran researchers will find something new, yet anyone with a curiosity of bubbles, foams, or lather will find this book interesting.
