About the Author

After finishing his PhD at Alexandria University, Tharwat Tadros was appointed lecturer in Physical Chemistry (1962-1966) at the same University. Between 1966 and 1969, he spent a sabbatical at the Agricultural University of Wageningen and T.N.O in Delft, the Netherlands. Thereafter he joined I.C.I. and ZENECA until 1994, where he researched various fields of surfactants, emulsions, suspensions, microemulsions, wetting spreading and adhesion and rheology. During that period he was also appointed visiting professor at Imperial College London, Bristol University and Reading University. In 1992, he was elected President of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Science. Since leaving ZENECA, Dr Tadros has worked as a consultant for various industries and also given several courses in his specialized field. He is the recipient of two medals from the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, and has more than 250 scientific papers to his name.


"This book provides a rich...source of information, especially for the industrial chemist who wishes to learn more about this fascinating world. ...this work will be consulted frequently by the practicing industrial surfactant chemist." Angewandte Chemie "This handbook meets the need for a comprehensive survey of surfactants and their properties, with a strong emphasis on applications and their correlation to the fundamentals. The author covers their classification, physical properties, phase behavior, adsorption, but also effects, such as wetting, spreading and adhesion, as well as industrial applications in personal care and cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals and food products. The author is a well-known expert on the topic of surfactants, with much experience in colloid science. In this volume, he uses his industrial experience to close the gap between the already published fundamentals of surfactants and their application in practice. Therefore, this book is recommended as a useful guideline for all scientists working in academics or industry with surface-active substances, especially in research and development. Together with 'Emulsions, Foams and Suspensions written by Laurier L. Schramm' and also published by Wiley-VCH this year, it is a basical platform for very special investigations in the interesting field of surfactants, such as sustainable enrichment of valuable plant ingredients by foaming for their further use as drugs or food additives."
