Colloidal systems are important across a range of industries, such as the food, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, cosmetics, polymer, paint and oil industries, and form the basis of a wide range of products (eg cosmetics & toiletries, processed foodstuffs and photographic film). A detailed understanding of their formation, control and application is required in those industries, yet many new graduate or postgraduate chemists or chemical engineers have little or no direct experience of colloids. Based on lectures given at the highly successful Bristol Colloid Centre Spring School, Colloid Science: Principles, Methods and Applications provides a thorough introduction to colloid science for industrial chemists, technologists and engineers. Lectures are collated and presented in a coherent and logical text on 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.

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.
Volume V is the counterpart of Volume IV and treats hydrophilic colloids and related items. Contains edited contributions on steric stabilization, depletion, polyelectrolytes, proteins at interfaces, association colloids, microemulsions, thin films, foams and emulsions. J. Lyklema is coauthor of two chapters and general editor. Other authors include: G.J. Fleer, F.A.M. Leermakers, M.A. Cohen Stuart, W. Norde, J.A.G. Buijs, J.C. Eriksson, T.Sottmann, R. Strey, D. Platikanov, D. Ekserova, V.Bergeron and P.Walstra. * This volume completes the prestigious series Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science * Together with Volume IV this book provides a comprehensive introduction to colloid science. * Explains and elaborates phenomena starting from basic principles and progresses to more advanced topics

Professor Brian Vincent is a leading light in colloid science both in the UK and internationally. The science Brian has been involved in has influenced many areas of colloids both academically and industrially. He has collaborated with many sectors of industry (including pharmaceuticals, petrochemicals, agrochemicals, personal products, laundry products, paints and coatings). Brian has also been an active member of both the RSC and the SCI and has collaborated with many universities in the UK and overseas. Brian Vincent retired from the position of Leverhulme Professor of Physical Chemistry at the University of Bristol at the end of 2007 after a long and distinguished career which started as a chemistry undergraduate in Bristol in 1961. After obtaining a 1st class honours degree in Chemistry and an MSc in Surface Chemistry and Colloids and a PhD, Brian then moved to Wageningen to work in Hans Lyklema's laboratory on a Royal Society Fellowship. This was to be the start of a lifelong friendship and scientific collaboration with the Colloid and Physical Chemistry Group there. After returning to the UK in 1969, Brian had a succession of top posts and appointments culminating in 1993 when he became the 5th Leverhulme Professor in Physical Chemistry. In 1994, together with Dr Jim Goodwin, Brian founded the very successful Bristol Colloid Centre, an organisation which carries out short-term research and consultancy work for industry. Brian has received many honours including the SCI Founder's Lecture and Award, the SCI Distinguished Service Award, the RSC award in Surface and Colloid Chemistry and the Rehbinder Lecture and Medal (Moscow). He has had numerous invitations to give lectures throughout the world and has published over 250 papers, articles, books and patents during his career. He has also been very active at the academic /industry interface and has been a consultant for many of the leading companies that use colloid technology worldwide. This unique book is effectively a compendium of Brian's research, complemented by contributions on current topics in colloids by some of the leading scientists in the field. It provides an overview of the broad spectrum of colloid and interface science in which Brian has been a research pioneer for many years. The contributors to this symposium volume comprise a selection of Brian's past students and postdocs who have themselves pursued academic careers and other colleagues with whom he has worked extensively, all of whom are of international standing in colloid science and as such make this book an invaluable reference tool. The book backs up a meeting organised jointly by the RSC Colloid and Interface Science Group and the SCI Colloid & Surface Science Group and covers topics such as: " The Adsorption of Small, Negative Particles onto Large Positive Particles " Polymer Chemistry, Hypervelocity Physics and the CASSINI Space Mission " The BV Droplets Downunder: From Model Emulsions to Drug Delivery " Polymers and Surfactants at Interfaces " Controlled Release as Desorption from Porous Polymeric Systems " Characterisation and Application of Colloidal Micorogels " Surface Modification The range of the subject material highlights Brian's own very broad interests in colloid science; it also reflects his long-standing interest in both the academic fundamentals as well as practical applications of the subject. The volume is dedicated to Brian in recognition of his considerable contribution to the world of colloid science and to the guidance and inspiration he has given to many future generations of colloid scientists. However, the book is not just reflective, but provides insight into new areas in which colloid science is being applied. It has specific appeal to both colloid scientists in academia and industry who will find this book fascinating as well as an indispensable reference tool.

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.
