Clay Swelling and Colloid Stability
by Martin V. Smalley

Clay Swelling and Colloid Stability puts emphasis on two significant paradigm shifts in colloid science that explain particle interactions for charged plates, stacks, suspensions, and pastes as well as spherical colloids.

Features:

  • Develops the underlying physicochemical principles of clay chemistry and colloid behavior from fundamental concepts in physical and colloid chemistry
  • Gives a complete account of the Coulombic Attraction Theory (Sogami Theory) of colloid stability
  • Illustrates the measurement of the complete counterion distribution as a function of distance along the swelling axis in a clay gel
  • Describes freezing experiments on the clay gels that cause the colloidally swollen gel phase to collapse into the crystalline phase
  • Explains why interparticle separations between colloidal particles decrease when a large polymer is introduced into the system
  • Contains 30 tables, 130 figures, 200 equations, and 300 references
