Fundamentals of Interfacial Engineering / Edition 1 available in Paperback
"Fundamentals of Interfacial Engineering" provides chemical,electronic, mechanical, and biomedical engineers with a coherent,integrated introduction to the fundamental concepts that relate tointerfacial phenomena with applications to different processes andproduct situations. This book emphasizes the importance ofintermolecular forces in holding materials together within a bulkphase or across an interface. It outlines the fundamentalintermolecular interactions that occur in all interfacial systems.The work also describes the properties, processing, and behavior offluid interfacial systems and treats solid surfaces andinterfaces.In addition to being of direct industrial relevance, this book willprovide engineering instructors with an excellent starting pointfor planning curriculum development in this important area.
