Colloidal systems are important across a range of industries, suchas the food, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, cosmetics, polymer,paint and oil industries, and form the basis of a wide range ofproducts (eg cosmetics & toiletries, processed foodstuffs andphotographic film). A detailed understanding of their formation,control and application is required in those industries, yet manynew graduate or postgraduate chemists or chemical engineers havelittle or no direct experience of colloids. Based on lectures given at the highly successful Bristol ColloidCentre Spring School, Colloid Science: Principles, Methods andApplications provides a thorough introduction to colloidscience for industrial chemists, technologists and engineers.Lectures are collated and presented in a coherent and logical texton practical colloid science.

While Volume I stands as an essentially complete advanced textbook of colloidal science, Volume II extends the material to include important new areas, and develops some of the topics in much greater depth. An introductory chapter on the theory of liquids describes the concept of correlation functions and the use of Fourier transforms to analyse the scattering of light and neutrons by colloidal systems. Absorption is given detailed coverage and a chapter on electrokinetics introduces a new approach to time-dependent processes in the double layer. The principles of double layer theory are also used to review the behavior of thin films and emulsions. A final chapter on the rheology of colloidal suspensions calls on many of the concepts developed earlier to bring some cohesion to this important and rapidly developing field.

Interface and colloid science is an important, though often under-valued, branch of science. It has applications and ramifications in domains as disparate as agriculture, mineral dressing, oil recovery, chemical industry, biotechnology, medical science, and many more. Proper application of interface and colloid science requires factual knowledge and insight into the many basic laws of physics and chemistry upon which it is based. Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science is the first book to cover this field in the depth neccessary to be a valuable reference and an excellent textbook. From the beginning to the end of the book, systems of growing complexity are treated gradually. The presentation is particularly suited to emphasize that interfaces are not autonomous phases. As a rule, interfacial properties can be varied only by changing the adjoining phases, so that the properties of these bulk phases must be understood first. The text also recognizes common principles behind a variety of phenomena, and helps the reader to understand them and to develop and improve processes. The systematic treatment of the material in the book makes this clear, and makes the text itself an important contribution to the field. Systematic treatment of information An excellent addition to volume I Two chapters contributed by other experts in the field Uses a deductive approach to increase the order of complexity Written by a leading expert in the field Two chapters contributed by other outstanding scientists Uses a systematic and deductive approach First comprehensive review of the topic

Surface and Colloid Science

Volume 11: Experimental Methods

Surface science and colloid science are preeminently experimental subjects. They constitute complementary aspects of a field which has been notably active since World War II; there is every reason to expect that the level of activity will continue to rise in the coming decades, so it is timely to review certain experimental methods of surface and colloid science as they exist, and to evaluate and refine those methods. This volume, and others that will follow, are principally concerned with experimental methods. The working scientist needs access to the latest techniques, of course. He also needs to learn of the potentialities of recently developed techniques which he may not have been aware of. Equally important, or perhaps even more so, he needs to learn of the pitfalls of existing methods. One might say, wistfully, that it would be nice to be able to pick up somebody's description of a new piece of apparatus, to go into the laboratory, to build it, and to have it work, the first time! There is, however, a serious problem of the interaction between the experiment per se and the theory for which the experiment is designed. Very often, this interaction renders problematic the interpretation of "direct" observations. An example, from experience of the senior editor of this volume, is the question of contact angle hysteresis. (See Chapters 1 and 2.

Ever since the first volume appeared in 1969, this series has received good reviews in a variety of periodicals published in different corners of the world. It would seem that the work has fulfilled its purpose as outlined in the Preface to Volume 1. The rapidly increasing interest in surface and colloid science by people engaged in industrial research and development, and in environmental, ecological, medical, pharmaceutical, and other areas, justifies the continuation of such an effort. The Surface and Colloid Science series originated with John Wiley and Sons and has been continued with Plenum Press. This volume is the third with the present publisher, and is the best assurance of our mutual interest to proceed with this work. Some books in the series, as was the case with Volume 11, may appear under the editorship of other workers in the field. For reasons of continuity, a sequential numbering system will be maintained. This editor hopes to provide the scientific and technical community with high-quality contributions in surface and colloid science in the future. He invites specialists to submit definitive chapters on any topic within the broad area of our discipline for inclusion in this series.

This book provides an introduction to colloid science, based on the application of the principles of physical chemistry. Early chapters assume only an elementary knowledge of physical chemistry and provide the basis for more thorough discussion in later chapters covering specific aspects of colloid science. The widespread occurrence of colloids is stressed and the more important industrial applications of colloid technology are outlined. The final chapter deals with the future of colloid science and indicates the directions in which further developments are likely to take place. The book is ideal for undergraduate courses and, supplemented by further reading, for postgraduates too. It will also be useful to industrial research workers who wish to become familiar with the basic ideas and their many important applications to industry.
