Release Date: 2010-02-16
Genre: Science

Colloidal systems are important across a range of industries, suchas the food, pharmaceutical, agrochemical, cosmetics, polymer,paint and oil industries, and form the basis of a wide range ofproducts (eg cosmetics & toiletries, processed foodstuffs andphotographic film). A detailed understanding of their formation,control and application is required in those industries, yet manynew graduate or postgraduate chemists or chemical engineers havelittle or no direct experience of colloids. Based on lectures given at the highly successful Bristol ColloidCentre Spring School, Colloid Science: Principles, Methods andApplications provides a thorough introduction to colloidscience for industrial chemists, technologists and engineers.Lectures are collated and presented in a coherent and logical texton practical colloid science.

Foundations of colloid science

Author: Robert J. Hunter
Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA
ISBN: 0198551894
Release Date: 1989
Genre: 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.
