Hansen, Lee D.; McCarlie, V. Wallace
Journal of Chemical Education, v81 n11-14 p1581 Nov 2004
The process of foam formation is used for demonstrating the way in which the application of physiochemical principles and knowledge of the physical properties of the materials contributes towards the understanding of a wide range of phenomenon. Solubility of gas and bubble growth should be considered during the development of foamed polymer products.
