Explaining principles essential for the interpretation of data and understanding the real meaning of the result, this work describes carious methods and techniques used to characterize dispersions and measure their physical and chemical properties. It describes a variety of dispersions containing particles ranging from submicron sizes to aggregates and from hard particles to polymer latices.


". . .an up to date comprehensive overview of the principles, methods, and tests 0nvolved in the characterization of dispersions."
