Surfactants in Slurry Stabilisation and Transportation: Preparation and Characterization describes methods for the isolation and characterization of natural surfactants and their potential as slurry stabilizers. It also describes the characterization of physical and chemical properties of coal, fly ash, crude oil, iron ore, limestone, etc. slurries, in relation to their particle distribution. It also includes slurry preparation and characterization by using different rheological parameters and discusses mechanisms of stabilization of different slurries. The book includes a comparative cost analysis and offers rheological modelling and Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) analysis of different slurry systems.

Key Features

  • Describes the characterization of natural and mixed surfactant systems and CMC
  • Describes the stabilization of high concentration slurry such as Coal slurry; Fly Ash slurry; Crude oil emulsion; Iron ore slurry; Limestone slurry, and many more
  • Outlines the rheological behaviour of high concentration slurry
  • Discusses the mechanistic approaches for the interaction of surfactants in slurry


Researchers from industries as well as academics in the field of Chemical Engineering, Mining Engineering. Chemistry, Mechanical Engineering, and Civil Engineering
