- Discusses the practical aspects and computational investigations of the extraction of biomolecules and metal ions using surfactants and micelles.
- Addresses the use of surfactants for the formation of nanoparticles and emulsions as sulfonation media.
Aims and Scope
This book describes the development of patented methods to extract biomolecules and heavy metal ions from aqueous solutions by using surfactants and micelles. Physicochemical basics as well as computational modelling studies analyse and explain the observed phenomena. Additionally, nanoparticle formation using surfactants and the sulfonation in emulsions are discussed.
