Sugar Esters Microemulsions covers recent advances in the formulation, characterization and applications of sugar esters microemulsions. This book comprehensibly covers a decade of experience on using sugar surfactants for various applications. It enables researchers in the field to follow a tested methodology in choosing the best sugar surfactant formulation that fits an application of interest. This book is the ultimate reference for all those in industry or academy working in the field of microemulsions in general and sugar esters in particular.

Key Features

  • Provides a timely reference for those working in research and development as well as academic scientists in the colloid and surface science field
  • Presents a succinct summary on recent research, eliminating the need to search through a multitude of resources for critical information
  • Complements existing books on microemulsions which take the more traditional approach of reviewing the fundamental aspects of the subject
  • Examines recent advances in the formulation and characterization of the properties of sugar ester microemulsions for various applications
  • Provides case studies in each chapter to clarify theoretical material


Researchers in academia; chemical engineers working in research, development, and manufacture of microemulsions
