A 'state-of-the-art' review is provided for chemicals which are used for dispersing spilled oil. Among the topics discussed are: the history of the development of oil spill dispersants; basic emulsion chemistry, including the nature and properties of surface active agents; chemical composition of oil spill dispersants, including a description of generic chemical types; production of dispersants, properties of dispersants; chemical analysis of oil spill dispersants; and the measurement of oil spill dispersing power.
