The effective use of microemulsions has increased dramatically during the past few decades as major industrial applications have increased in a variety of fields. This volume provides a complete and systematic assessment of all topics affecting microemulsion performance, discussing fundamental characteristics, theories, and applications of these dispersions. Outlining traditional and experimental techniques in a variety of microemulsified systems, the text describes new types of surfactants, interactions at microemulsion interfaces, and the fundamentals of nanotechnology. Each chapter describes a fundamental phenomenon and the principles involved in microemulsion processes, emphasizing the mechanisms of microemulsion formation and deformation in various processes and explaining why microemulsions are used for the intended application.
