Interaction of oils with surfactants (1996)
Thesis
MacNab, J. R. (1996). Interaction of oils with surfactants. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4211419

This thesis is concerned with the interactions of oils with surfactants. The understanding of these interactions is important for a number of practical applications which include perfume delivery in fabric softeners. Both non-ionic surfactants, of th...

Contact angles in relation to the effects of solid particles on foam stability (1995)
Thesis
Rutherford, C. E. (1995). Contact angles in relation to the effects of solid particles on foam stability. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4218777

This thesis is concerned with the bridging-dewetting mechanism of foam breakdown by spherical hydrophobic particles. The role of contact angles (of solid with surfactant solution) in foam breakdown by particles has previously been investigated using...

Ultralow interfacial tensions and microemulsion formation in oil-water-surfactant systems (1986)
Thesis
Binks, B. P. (1986). Ultralow interfacial tensions and microemulsion formation in oil-water-surfactant systems. (Thesis). University of Hull. Retrieved from https://hull-repository.worktribe.com/output/4211452

The thesis is concerned with aspects of the surface and colloid chemistry of various oil+water systems containing pure surfactants. In alkane plus aqueous NaCI systems containing the surfactant diethylhexyl sodium sulphosuccinate (AOT) , the alkane-a...
