From reviews of the first edition: "Very well written and brings a focus and a perspective that are not currently available in one convenient volume, especially one that is suitable for self-study or as a teaching tool." -Colloid and Interface Science "A revolutionary approach [to] writing an up-to-date text on 'The Colloidal Domain' and its origin in and impact on physics, chemistry, biology, and technology." -Advanced Materials "The authors should be congratulated for producing such a well-written text that is full of illustrations and formulas." -Chemistry and Industry This new edition of Evans and Wennerstr-m's critically acclaimed text provides students and professionals with a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of colloid science theory, methods, and applications. Emphasizing the molecular interactions that determine the properties of colloidal systems, the authors provide an authoritative account of critical developments in colloid science that have occurred over the past several decades. Combining all of the best features of a professional reference and a student text, The Colloidal Domain, Second Edition features:
* Concept maps preceding each chapter that put subject matter into perspective
* Numerous worked examples-many new to this edition-illustrating key concepts
* More than 250 high-quality illustrations that help clarify processes described
* A new chapter that integrates the development of colloid science and technology in the twentieth century with challenges facing the field today
The Colloidal Domain, Second Edition is an indispensable professional resource for chemists and chemical engineers working in a range of areas, including the petrochemical, food, agricultural, ceramic, coatings, forestry, and paper industries. It is also a superb educational tool for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students of physical chemistry and chemical engineering.
