Biosurfactants : research trends and applications

Author: Catherine N Mulligan; Ackmez Mudhoo; Sanjay K Sharma
Publisher: Boca Raton, FL : Taylor & Francis, 2014.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Database:WorldCat
Summary:
Microbially derived surfactants, called biosurfactants, provide a promising alternative to synthetic surfactants, displaying better availability and being generally nontoxic and biodegradable. Biosurfactants also have the advantage of diverse chemical properties and the potential to be less expensive. They demonstrate properties such as reducing surface tension, stabilizing emulsions, and promoting foaming. With  Read more...

Abstract:

Microbially derived surfactants, called biosurfactants, provide a promising alternative to synthetic surfactants, displaying better availability and being generally nontoxic and biodegradable. Biosurfactants also have the advantage of diverse chemical properties and the potential to be less expensive. They demonstrate properties such as reducing surface tension, stabilizing emulsions, and promoting foaming. With many promising research results, a consolidated resource of biosurfactant knowledge is needed to build a framework for further development of applications. Biosurfactants: Resear.
