An international community of chemists has come together to create the definitive handbook on surface and colloidal systems, incorporating a massive amount of data into one single volume. Summarizing recent research in the field, The Handbook of Surface and Colloid Chemistry eliminates the need to search through stacks of journals for critical information. All the facts you need in the laboratory or in the classroom are at your fingertips in a unique style and form that can be used as an effective guide for planning future research. A chapter on surface tension of polymers is included.

From the Preface: “...The application area of surface and colloid science has increased dramatically during the past decades. For example, the major industrial areas have been soaps and detergents, emulsion technology, colloidal dispersions (suspensions; nanoparticles), wetting and contact angle, paper, cement, oil recovery, pollution control, fogs, foams (thin liquid films), food industry, biomembranes, membranes, and pharmaceutical industry. Recently, new areas of applications are developing, one of which is the synthetic transplants and biological monitors...”

Target Audience: Research chemists pursuing a broad range of technologies; biotechnologists; surface and interfacial scientists; and upper-level students of physical, colloid, and surface chemistry.
