About this book


This dictionary has been compiled from the manuscripts of the book Surfactants in Consumer Products Theory, Technology and Application Springer-Verlag, 1987 ISBN 3-540-17019-7 which was edited by me. This work provides a comprehensive survey of the chemistry, technology and application of surfac­ tants in everyday products. It also covers important industrial applications and future trends. The wealth of subject matter is reflected in this dictionary with approx. 3,200 keywords listed in English-German and German-English. In both languages, chemical nomenclature has been based on the latest IUPAC rules. Preference has been given to the use of American-English terminology. The gender of German nouns is given in brackets. I wish to thank Mr. KURT SIEKMANN for having undertaken the task of compiling a dictionary dedicated to the vocabulary used in this book. I would also like to thank Dr. MARIANNE REINHARDT for the initiative to produce this supplement. I am grateful to Dr. RAINER STUMPE of Springer-Verlag for his cooperation. I am indebted to Mr. WALTER SCHNEIDER for providing a suitable word processing program and to Miss MINOO KEYNEJAD for her invaluable assistance in proof-reading the manuscripts.
