Overview

From blood to milk, pumice to gelatine, most scientists interact with colloids on a daily basis without any real knowledge of their nature. Building on the success of the first edition, Colloids and Interfaces with Surfactants and Polymers Second Edition is a user-friendly, non-technical introduction to colloids and interfaces.

Includes:

  • Many practical examples of colloid and interface science
  • An enhanced section on fluorescence microscopy, a widely used technique in biological systems for the optical imaging of cellular structures
  • A new section on phenomenology (the principle of time/temperature superposition), which enables the experimentalist to extend the frequency range of their rheological instruments
  • New information on sedimentation and strategies for the control of sedimentation, which is critical in many dispersions of commercial importance
  • Fresh treatments of traditional theoretical topics like the electrical double-layer, colloidal interactions, wetting behavior and light scattering, as well as more recent advances in polymer science, statistical mechanics and the use of neutrons
  • In-depth discussions of widely used techniques with mathematics used in a straight-forward way so quantitative descriptions of colloid and interface properties can be derived

Colloids and Interfaces with Surfactants and Polymers Second Edition explains all the fundamental concepts of colloids and interfaces as well as detailing some of the more advanced aspects which might be useful in specific applications. Intended for undergraduate and graduate courses in colloids and soft materials, the book is also relevant to those in the chemical, coatings, cosmetics, ceramics, food, pharmaceutical and oil industries.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“A very easy, and indeed enjoyable text to follow. From personal experience I know that this book has been very well accepted and used by undergraduates and postgraduates … .The text highlights the critical points and issues … .The book actually tells a story but as with any text book can be dipped into to whichever subject is being investigated. A useful desktop reference text book for its intended readership. Overall, this text is a welcome addition to the colloid community.” (Bristol Colloid Centre, November 2009)
