By Charles M. Hansen
Charles Hansen begun his paintings with solvents in 1962, and presently all started generating new and groundbreaking effects. seeing that then, his Hansen Solubility Parameters were widely used and confirmed worthwhile to a number of industries, together with coatings, adhesives, plastics, protecting garments, and environmental security. they enable correlations and systematic comparisons formerly impossible, resembling polymer solubility, swelling and permeation, floor wetting and dewetting, the solubility of natural salts, and plenty of organic functions. previously, besides the fact that, their doubtless common skill to foretell molecular affinities has been as a rule taken as semiempirical.
Moving past the Hildebrand and Flory theories, Hansen came across that his procedure not just quantitatively describes hydrogen bonding and polar bonding in lots of kinds of structures, yet in reality consents with and extends the very common Prigogine conception. This explains why the correlations all appear to healthy with an it sounds as if "universal" four: it effects from the validity of employing the geometric suggest rule to explain dispersion, everlasting dipole-permanent dipole, and hydrogen bonding interplay in combos of not like molecules.
Hansen Solubility Parameters offers new tables of formerly unpublished correlations and parameters. the writer illuminates his textual content with functional examples concerning coatings, organic platforms, pigments, and fibers, and takes a basic method that makes this reference perfect for predicting compatibility, adsorption on surfaces, orientation towards fabrics of comparable affinities (self-assembly), and different phenomena linked to solubility and affinity.
Chemists, chemical engineers, and biochemists will locate this book-the gathered paintings and event of the daddy of its concept-intriguing for its idea and precious for its info.
