Surface and Colloid Science Book from C.H.I.P.S.

of Surface
and Colloid Chemistry

Second Edition
edited by K.S. Birdi

  • New! Information on phase equilibria and surfactants, liposomes-drug delivery, and enhanced oil recovery
  • Contributions from a distinguished panel of international scientists
  • Extensive data in 100 tables and 200 figures
  • Over 2000 references

Completely revised and expanded to reflect the very active worldwide research on this subject, this is the definitive handbook for the chemistry of surface and colloidal systems.

With contributions from a team of international experts, the Handbook of Surface and Colloid Chemistry, Second Edition brings you up-to-date on the most recent developments in this area, with extensive coverage of a range of research subjects. The scope of the second edition includes such topics as interfacial film structures for thin-film formation and emulsion formation; contact angle and adsorption studies to characterize solid surfaces; the impact of the scanning tunneling microscope and the atomic force microscope; and more. The theoretical basis of colloids and their stability is thoroughly described, which will be sure to lead to more fascinating developments.

This new edition of the Handbook of Surface and Colloid Chemistry retains the outstanding organization of its bestselling predecessor, while augmenting the text with new research and developments in the field. It continues to provide authoritative information in a format that provides a valuable resource for planning your future research.
