Contents Notes
Hydrogels -- Associating Polymers: A. General Concepts; B. Performance in Solution -- Conventional Water-Soluble Polymers -- Indexes: Author Index; Affiliation Index; Subject Index. "This volume reviews the recent developments in the behavior of surfactant-modified, water-soluble polymers in aqueous solutions. The use of water-soluble polymers in biodegradable and biological systems and the development of unique hydrogels and new nonassociative water-soluble polymers is also discussed. This volume will be valuable reading for polymer chemists and engineers interested in personal care products, coatings, and detergents. Scientists interested in petroleum recovery and water treatment will also find this book useful."--BOOK JACKET.
