Polymer Science Reference from C.H.I.P.S.

Polymer Interfaces and Emulsions
edited by Kunio Esumi

This outstanding resource presents the latest knowledge on a wide range of topics in polymer science, including the dynamics, preparation, application, and physicochemical properties of polymer solutions and colloids; the adsorption characteristics at polymer surfaces; and the adhesion properties (including acid-base) of polymer surfaces.

Written by over 25 experts from Asia, Europe, and North and South America, Polymer Interfaces and Emulsions

  • discusses structural ordering in polymer solutions and the influence of surface structure on polymer surfaces
  • examines the physicochemical behavior of polymer colloids at surfaces and interfaces
  • demonstrates the importance of intermolecular interactions in the adhesion of polymer surfaces
  • analyzes the mechanism of adsorption at polymer surfaces and polymer-bridging of colloids
  • reviews the preparation and application of polymer colloids
  • and more!

Complete with over 1000 references, tables, equations, drawings, photographs, and micrographs, Polymer Interfaces and Emulsions is essential reading for polymer, physical, surface, colloid, and pharmaceutical chemists; plastics, polymer, process, and chemical engineers; materials scientists; physicists; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
