Counter This book is the premier text in the field, and the third edition is completely updated and revised. It includes coverage of the literature that has appeared since the publication of the second edition, as well as new topics such as: gemini surfactants (a new type of powerful surfactant), superspreading (or superwetting) by aqueous surfactant solutions of highly hydrophobic surfaces (important in agricultural applications), and dynamic surface tension (an important interfacial property not covered in the first two editions).
