Foundations of Colloid Science

The first volume of "Foundations of Colloid Science" was essentially complete in itself as an advanced textbook of colloid science, suitable for students and researchers in the fields of physical chemistry and chemical engineering. In Volume II the material has been extended to include some new areas and topics discussed in the first volume are developed in greater depth. An introductory chapter on the theory of liquids describes the concept of correlation functions and the use of Fourier transforms to analyze the scattering of light and neutrons by colloidal systems. Adsorption 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 behaviour of thin films and emulsions (both macro and micro). A final chapter on the rheology of colloidal suspensions calls on many of the concepts developed earlier to bring some cohesion to this important field. Advanced undergraduates and graduate students in colloids, materials science and engineering and researchers in colloid and surface chemistry, civil and chemical engineering and materials science should all find this text of interest.
