About the book
Microemulsions are colloidal systems known for a long time, but their applications are still very modern, from advanced drug delivery systems to functional foods and novel eco-friendly fuels. Due to their unique characteristics, microemulsions have now found various new applications and are widely used in controlled synthesis of nanoparticles, complex systems for cleaning works of art, in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and food, biotechnology and sustainable agriculture. There are specific restrictions of formulation for each of these areas, which makes the microemulsion research very challenging.
This book, as a collection of chapters authored by international experts, intends to cover modern aspects in theory of formulation and advanced applications of microemulsions in various industries.
The book aims to provide deep understanding of theoretical aspects in microemulsion formulation and bring to the readers the current state-of-the-art and perspectives in design microemulsions tailored for novel applications.
The book will contain information that will be of interest to researchers, engineers, biomedical specialists, students in physical chemistry, pharmacy, material science and nanomaterials.
