Oil spill remediation : colloid chemistry-based principles and solutions by Ponisseril Somasundaran( )

14 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In April of 2010, the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico became the largest accidental release of oil into marine waters in history, resulting in severe environmental, health and economic consequences. Begins with a science-based overview of the 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil spill. Next, it discusses: Oil spill remediation from the perspective of physicochemical and colloidal science; Current regulations on toxic impact of oil and dispersants, and the available environment assessment tools and resources for the remediation of oil spills; Current research on dispersants, colloids, and other options for remediation. Each chapter addresses deeper scientific problems associated with current technologies and highlights the urgent need for better remediation methods. This monograph is valuable for all experts in, but not limited to, the chemical, physical-chemical, geological and environmental fields, endeavoring to understand, design and develop new and efficient remediation techniques.--
Self-assembled supramolecular architectures : lyotropic liquid crystals by Nissim Garti( )

9 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 635 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book will describe fundamentals and recent developments in the area of Self-Assembled Supramolecular Architecture and their relevance to the understanding of the functionality of membranes as delivery systems for active ingredients. As the heirarchial architectures determine their performance capabilities, attention will be paid to theoretical and design aspects related to the construction of lyotropic liquid crystals: mesophases such as lamellar, hexagonal, cubic, sponge phase micellosomes. The book will bring to the reader mechanistic aspects, compositional considerations, transition
Handbook for cleaning/decontamination of surfaces( )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 581 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The focus of Handbook for Cleaning/Decontamination of Surfaces lies on cleaning and decontamination of surfaces and solid matter, hard as well as soft. Bringing together in a 2-volume reference source: - current knowledge of the physico-chemical fundamentals underlying the cleaning process; - the different needs for cleaning and how these needs are met by various types of cleaning processes and cleaning agents, including novel approaches; - how to test that cleaning has taken place and to what extent; - the effects of cleaning on the environment; - future trends in cleaning and decontamination, for example the idea of changing surfaces, to hinder the absorbance of dirt and thus make cleaning easier. A brief introduction is given to the legal demands concerning the environment and a historical background, in terms of development of detergents, from soaps to the modern sophisticated formulations. Bactericides, their use and the environmental demands on them are covered. Thorough discussions of mechanisms for cleaning are given in several chapters, both general basic concepts and special cases like particle cleaning and cleaning using microemulsion concepts. * General understanding of how cleaning works, function of ingredients and formulations * Overview of environmental issues and demands from the society in the area * Gives basic formulas for cleaning preparations in most areas

Solution chemistry : minerals and reagents by P Somasundaran( )

13 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 344 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The essentials of solution chemistry of mineral/surfactant systems are systematically presented in this book along with important calculations that quantitatively describe the chemical interactions in question. We consider the influence of relevant physico-chemical conditions on solution chemistry. Importantly, because the properties of reagents are closely related to their molecular structure, special attention is devoted to their molecular characteristics."--BOOK JACKET

Encyclopedia of surface and colloid science by Ponisseril Somasundaran( )

10 editions published between 2002 and 2016 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Encyclopedia of Surface and Colloid Science draws together the interface-related aspects of chemistry, materials sciences and engineering, biology, physics, computer sciences, and applied mathematics. This new edition discusses important advancements made in the last decade or so, namely, the understanding of the fundamental theories in colloid and surface science, the development of new and improved methods, and the design of particles-nanoparticles. With an emerging impetus on topics such as health care and renewable energy, this edition also addresses many fundamental aspects, as well as applications, related to drug design and delivery and the development of highly efficient catalysts including novel ways to generate renewable energy. Researchers who are pioneers in their respective disciplines provide the current state of knowledge from their research findings, as well as other valuable information, in the introductory sections of each book. Encompassing ten volumes, this new edition continues to provide practitioners with all the information they need to devise or modify processes both for current and new products
