Surfactants are utilized in many industrial processes. The main purpose of the surfactant is to lower the surface tension of a solution and stabilize interfaces.

This 20 min webinar gives an overview of how surfactants are used in industrial processes and how surface tension measurements are utilized to optimize these. Examples are given to show the importance of surface tension measurements in practice. The most used measurement methods are briefly reviewed.
