Written by outstanding experts in the colloids field, this book deals with the recent developments in the synthesis, modification, utilization and application of colloids. The types covered range from metal nanoparticles through to inorganic particles and polymer latexes. Strategies for their modification to impart new properties will be outlined and ordered assemblies derived from colloid particles and some applications for colloids are shown.
A multidisciplinary audience spread throughout academia and industry alike will certainly appreciate this first concise collection of knowledge in book form for this topic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Materials Today, May 2004

"In general the production quality of the publication is of the high level that one naturally associates with the publisher. The writing is clear and concise, and the figures are mostly attractive and informative. ... In essence this is a timely work, collecting together the latest research in all the facets of the subject matter. This makes the book a wise acquisition even for those well up-to-date in their own field - there will certainly be a lot of new information and concepts here for everyone. It is both a good read and a helpful reference work."
Dr. Andrew N. Shipway, Mempile Israel Ltd., Kiryat Hatikshoret, Neve Ilan, CHEMPHYSCHEM, 11/2004

"A strength of the book is that the contributing authors are leading researchers on the topics presented and have backgrounds in chemistry, physics, chemical engineering, materials science and engineering or biomedical engineering. This enables the work to have wide applicability to the activities of a multidisciplinary audience of scientists and engineers. Much of the text reads like a compilation of excellent review articles, however, relevant basic science concepts that are fundamental to current and future developments are also provided. ... The book is exciting and full of new ideas and directions for the thirty year horizon and beyond. It is a reference that many willl want to read from cover to cover."
Chekesha Liddell, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Cornell University, Ithaca, NY,
Advanced Materials, Vol. 16, No. 22, November 18, 2004

"In view of the rapid developments in the application of nanoparticles and nanomaterials in many technological and other fields, as emphasized at the beginning of this review, this book has appeared at just the right time, and the authors and publisher deserve special thanks for that."
Angewandte Chemie I.E., Vol. 43, No. 41, 2004

Meet the Author

Frank Caruso’s research interests are in the areas of tailored colloidal systems, polymers at interfaces, protein architectures and nonocomposites thin films.
He obtained his B.Sc. (Hons), first class, and Ph.D. in physical chemistry from The University of Melbourne, Australia (1989 and 1994). He went on to a postdoctoral fellowship at the Division of Chemicals and Polymers, CSIRO, Melbourne, and then joined the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces in Berlin, Germany, as an Alexander von Humboldt Research Fellow in 1997. In 1999 he became Group Leader at the MPI. In 2002, he returned to The University of Melbourne (Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering) as Professor and Australian Research Council Federation Fellow.
Apart from his fellowships, Prof. Caruso has been awarded other prizes for his scientific achievements, including the MPICI award for research excellence (1998), a research award for young achievers in the biosciences from the German Federal Ministry of Education, Science, Research and Technology (1999), the Royal Australian Chemical Institute (RACI) Rennie Memorial Medal (2000) and the Royal Society of Chemistry-RACI Exchange Medal (2001).
He is a member of the International Advisory Boards of the Wiley-VCH journal Advanced Functional Materials and the American Chemical Society journal Chemistry of Materials. To date, his scientific work has been published in over 115 refereed journal papers and several book chapters, and has yielded 10 patents.
