Applied Colloid and Surface Chemistry is a broadintroduction to this interdisciplinary field. Taking a genuinelyapplied approach, with applications drawn from a wide range ofindustries, this book will meet the demands of the student andprofessional currently working in the field.
The text includes keynote sections written by practicingindustrial research scientists, bringing to the reader a wealth ofreal industrial examples. These examples range from water treatmentthrough to soil management as well as examples taken from thecoatings and photographic industries. To aid accessibility, some ofthe more demanding mathematical derivations are separated from themain text, enabling them to be avoided as required.
With carefully structured chapters, starting with learningobjectives, and containing tutorial questions with answers andexplanatory notes, this text is invaluable for undergraduatestaking a first course on colloid and surface chemistry. This bookwill also be suitable to postgraduates and professionals, who needan up-to-date account of the subject.
