Revising, updating and expanding information on developments since the late 1980s, the second edition of this work presents practical, fundamental material on interfacial electric phenomena in acqueous and nonaqueous systems, as well as their relation to colloid stability. The book includes 15 additional chapters that reflect collaborative efforts with new experts in the field.
