In many modern technologies, surface-active compounds, such as surfactants, polymers, proteins, particles and their mixtures, are essential components. They change the dynamic and equilibrium properties of the inherent interfaces, which is mostly visible in foams and emulsions. The interfacial dilational visco-elasticity is probably the most informative quantity due to its direct interrelation to the equation of state of the corresponding interfacial layers as well as the mechanisms governing the interfacial molecular dynamics. The scientific field of interfacial visco-elasticity, although quite young, has been inspired by the pioneering work of Marangoni, Levich, Lucassen, Lucassen-Reynders, Hansen, van den Tempel and Krotov, and during the last decades, also significantly by Boris Noskov. His contributions to the theoretical foundation and experimental analysis of polymer and mixed surfactant–polymer interfacial layers in particular are essential.
