THE COLLOIDAL DOMAIN Second Edition Where Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Technology Meet

D. Fennell Evans and Hænsch Wennerstr-m

Fully updated and revised, this new edition of the critically acclaimed book incorporates information on key developments in colloid science and technology in the twentieth century. It provides a unified treatment of colloid theory, methods, and applications to specific systems, complete with concept maps, new worked examples, and more than 250 illustrations.

1999 (0-471-24247-0) 672 pp.


Robert J. Stokes and D. Fennell Evans

This book emphasizes the importance of the intermolecular forces that hold materials together within a bulk phase or across an interface. It examines the fundamentals of the intermolecular interactions along with the properties, processing, and behavior of fluid interfacial systems. Solid surfaces and interfaces are also discussed.

1996 (0-471-18647-3) 736 pp.


Fourth Edition

Edited by J. Brandrup, E. H. Immergut, and E. A. Grulke

Now in a fourth edition, the Polymer Handbook is one of the most comprehensive resources of fundamental, validated property data of polymeric materials necessary for polymer research. This edition boasts over 30% new material, covering such advances as the new pvt relationships and copolymer reactivity parameters. Improved nomenclature for better indexing and search and retrieval is also provided.

1999 (0-471-16628-6) 2336 pp.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the whole volume is very satisfying to read." (Talanta, Vol 52, 2000)

"...can certainly be recommended to anyone about to become involved in the area of colloid-polymer interactions." (Angewandte Chemie, 4th August 2000)

...the whole volume is very satisfying to read.
Angewandte Chemie
...can certainly be recommended to anyone about to become involved in the area of colloid-polymer interactions.
Provides a forum in which engineers and others close to the applications end of the spectrum and scientists working at the theoretical and mathematical end can better understand each other's requirements and efforts. The four contributions on applied technologies include discussions of polyelectrolyte-assisted dewatering, and dual addition schemes; among the four on fundamental interaction are depletion-induced aggregation and colloidal phase separation, and small-angle neutron methods in polymer adsorption studies. Another seven studies look at methods for investigating polymer adsorption such as the nuclear magnetic resonance of surface polymers and total internal reflectance fluorescence. Annotation c.
