A bestseller in its first edition, Liquid Detergents, Second Edition captures the most significant advances since 1996, maintaining its reputation as a first-stop reference in all fundamental theories, practical applications, and manufacturing aspects of liquid detergents.

Featuring new material and updates in every chapter, the book expands its coverage of emulsions to include nanoemulsions, adds new data to elucidate the rheology of current commercial detergent raw materials as compared to finished products, and offers a more complete theoretical treatment of the aggregation in non-aqueous solvents. The book now covers all rheology modifiers and thickeners for detergent applications, antibacterial and sensorial light-duty liquid products, color/fabric care and wrinkle reduction in heavy-duty liquid detergents, and household cleaning wipes in specialty liquid household surface cleaners. Rewriting the chapters on the latest improvements and growing benefits in fabric softeners, liquid hand soaps and body washes, and shampoos and conditioners, the latter contains extensive summaries of patents for various new products and technologies. The final chapter, dedicated to the manufacturing of liquid detergents, offers a discussion on continuous vs. batch processes and micro-contamination.

The most comprehensive guide of its kind, Liquid Detergents, Second Edition, is a balanced and practical reference that will continue to inspire students, researchers, chemists, and product developers in detergent industry, surfactant science and industrial chemistry.

“The book is rich with highly relevant figures, graphs, and tables, and its relevance is enhanced by the detail that it goes into when assessing easily recognizable off the shelf products. The strength of this book lies in the way that it is clearly set out into the appropriate sections, and it may be easily used to obtain either a cursory or detailed knowledge of each type of detergent as required. Whether student or professional, it is very easy to find the part that you want and access the relevant information…an outstanding resource for students or professionals at any level who are working with liquid detergents.”
-Mark Imisides, Physical Sciences Educational Reviews, Vol. 7, No. 1

“The book will be a useful reference volume for workers in this area: it gives some frame formulations but is particularly useful in covering the theory behind the use of the various components in liquid detergents.”
-Richard Farn, Chemistry & Industry, October 2006
