The 'Handbook of Applied Surface and Colloid Chemistry' is a unique reference work that addresses the most important applications, phenomena and analytical techniques of wet surface chemistry. Including an enormous wealth of mainly practically orientated information it is written by an international team of renowned scientists and delivers with authority and experience content that thoroughly covers all the major applications.<br> <br> Helpfully organised into five parts the two volumes incorporate a double column format and numerous diagrams. The user-friendly structure allows readers to rapidly locate topics of particular interest and the clearly defined sections present the topic in a thorough and comprehensive manner.<br> <br> Part One: Surface Chemistry in Important<br> Technologies<br> Covers industrial and domestic uses - from life<br> science-related applications right through to industrial processes.<br> <br> Part Two: Surfactants<br> Thoroughly addresses the key properties and<br> applications of the most important surfactants - the<br> main tool in surface and colloid chemistry.<br> <br> Part Three: Colloidal Systems and Layer<br> Structures at Surfaces<br> Provides full information on four important colloidal<br> systems such as:<br> -- Solid dispersions (suspensions)<br> -- Foams<br> -- Vesicles and liposomes<br> -- Microemulsions<br> <br> Part Four: Phenomena in Surface Chemistry<br> Extensively reviews the important phenomena of<br> foam breaking, solubilization, rheological effects of<br> surfactants, as well as wetting, spreading and<br> penetration.<br> <br> Part Five: Analysis and Characterization in<br> Surface Chemistry<br> To assist the researcher focussing on a particular<br> problem the section is organised by surface<br> parameter rather than by method or technique.

Industry Reviews

"...a valuable addition to any technical library...concisely covers five books? worth of material in two handy volumes..." (Polymer News)

"Readers will appreciate...this two-volume, practically oriented reference..." (SciTech Book News, Vol. 26, No. 2, June 2002)

"...an excellent collection of topical reviews, both fundamental and applied, and is recommended to academic and industrial researchers alike." (Journal of the American Chemical Society, 2002)
