This single-volume compendium fulfills the demand for a compact version of the
widely acclaimed Encyclopedia of Surfactants and contains over 12,000 entries. The
surfactant products included have been compiled with. the cooperation of the major
national and international surfactant manufacturers.
The first section of this reference is a Trademark Dictionary that contains short entries for all tradename surfactants that appear in Volumes I-IV of the Encyclopedia plus all the new surfactant products that have become available since the publication of this set. Each tradename entry is followed by a number in brackets which refers to the manufacturer that is listed in Part III of this encyclopedia.
What makes this reference unique and especially useful for anyone doing chemical
research is the addition of the Chemical Component-to-Tradename Cross Reference
section. This provides the user with the capability of finding tradename surfactant
products that contain specific chemical compounds.
For example, by locating alphabetically
the chemical ammonium lauryl sulfate, the user is able to retrieve a list of all the
tradename products that contain that chemical. The user can then refer back to the frrst
section for detailed descriptions of the specific tradename products listed here.
This section also includes the chemical compound synonyms for the surfactant
components which are cross referenced in most cases to the alternate chemical names that
contain the tradename product listings. Primary chemical component references are made
to the CTFA (Cosmetic, Toiletry, and Fragrance Association) adopted names where
possible. For many chemical entries the Chemical Abstract Service Registry Numbers
(CAS) are given. This number ensures the unique identification of a chemical regardless
of its multiplicity of synonyms. RD (Recognized Disclosure) reference numbers are
included in some cases either in addition to the CAS number or because no CAS number
has been assigned as yet.
The third section presents the names and addresses of the manufacturers of all of the
products included in this compendium with their associated tradenames.
