About this book

This work highlights the physical chemistry of surfactant solutions, detailing a fundamental method of selecting surfactants for agrochemical formulations and delineating how surfactants enhance the biological efficacy of agrochemicals. The unique properties of surfactants that have a major influence on the performance of an agrochemical are summarized. The book is intended for physical, surface and colloid chemists; biochemists; microbiologists; agronomists; research and development personnel in the pesticide and fertilizer industries; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students taking chemistry and chemical engineering courses.


Physical chemistry of surfactant solutions; adsorption of surfactants and polymers at the air/liquid, liquid/liquid and solid/liquid interfaces; emulsifiable concentrates; emulsions; suspension concentrates; microemulsions; role of surfactants in the transfer and performance of agrochemicals.
