Formatted abstract
In the world of industrial surfactants, established for at least five decades, surface-active substances, both synthetic and of biological origin, have been adsorbed to solid surfaces to impart many desirable properties, all of which have withstood the test of time on a large scale. Those relevant to physiology include boundary lubrication, release (anti-stick), modification of permeability, and the imposition of a barrier both to chemical and biological agents.
