Biobased Surfactants: Synthesis, Properties, and Applications, Second Edition , covers biosurfactant synthesis and applications and demonstrates how to reduce manufacturing and purification costs, impurities, and by-products.
Fully updated, this book covers surfactants in biomedical applications, detergents, personal care, food, pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, and nanotechnology. It reflects on the latest developments in biobased surfactant science and provides case scenarios to guide readers in efficient and effective biobased surfactant application, along with strategies for research into new applications.
This book is written from a biorefinery-based perspective by an international team of experts and acts as a key text for researchers and practitioners involved in the synthesis, utilization, and development of biobased surfactants.

Surfactants have the ability to overcome the capillary forces restricting mobilization of oil in the porous media. Generally, the application of surfactants in harsh reservoir conditions has been avoided, due to the challenges accompanying their implementation in such conditions. The investigations were made using surface tension, interfacial tension and partitioning experiments. IFT results showed that the presence of the surfactant mixture was capable of reducing the IFT between crude oil and brine, and achieve low IFT value 0. Partitioning test results explained the partitioning behaviour of the surfactant molecules into the oil-water interface.
The use of water as a solvent for chemical transformations and catalysis is not only a counter-intuitive original approach with respect to catalysis in traditional media, but thanks to micellar catalysis and the recent development of new designer surfactants, it is becoming an important real benchtop alternative to the employment of organic solvents. Micellar catalysis has received new focus thanks to the recent introduction of the so-called designer surfactants by the group of Lipshutz as surfactants specifically designed and tested for catalysis in water. In particular, the advent of the benchmark TPGSM has really revolutionized chemical synthesis and catalysis in aqueous media, leading also to important positive outcomes suitable for industrial scale applications. The present contribution covers the preparation and the applications in chemical transformations and catalysis of very recent new designer surfactants. These are readily available and economic amphiphiles, mostly prepared from renewable resources, that are specifically designed and tested for catalytic reactions in water.
The surfactants are among the materials that have a significant importance in everyday life of human. The rapid growth in science and technology has opened new horizons in a very wide range, in which the surfactants play a major and vital role. Hence, the increasing number of applications as well as arising environmental issues has made this relatively old topic still a hot research theme. In the
