Polymeric Surfactants

Front Cover
CRC Press, Jan 22, 1992 - Science - 302 pages
This reference describes the important phases and applications of polymeric surface active materials - including colloid stabilization and solution properties, syntheses with various techniques, and uses in polymerization as stabilizers and as compatibilizers in incompatible polymer blends.;Written for scientists involved in research fields other than polymer colloids, this book discusses colloid stabilization by polymeric surfactants in aqueous and nonaqueous systems, as well as custom synthesis of these materials. It examines their uses as stabilizers in heterophase polymerizations and considers the phenomenon of adsorption at surfaces and interfaces. The properties and characteristics of such compounds as polyelectrolytes, polyampholytes and hydrogels are clarified.;Containing many drawings and tables, this book is for materials scientists, chemists, engineers and physicists in the polymer industry working with paints, adhesives, elastomers and blends.
