This volume extends the discussions of basic theory and applications featured in volumes 1-3 of this series. It includes details on emulsion stability and emulsification; an examination on the effect of added polymers on emulsion rheology; findings on the role of repulsive forces in aqueous solubility, micelle stability, micro-emulsion formation, and phase separation; and a model for microemulsions.


"About Volume 1: Basic Theory . . .an invaluable tool for anyone working in the emulsion technology field as well as for research workers in colloid and surface chemistry. . ..It undoubtedly will be the outstanding reference work in the emulsion field for years to come. "

---Journal of the American Oil Chemists' Society About Volume 2: Applications

". . .highly recommended for the shelf of any laboratory dealing with emulsions; it will certainly prove to be an excellent investment. "

---Pharmaceutical Technology About Volume 3: Basic Theory/Measurement/Applications

"This volume, like its predecessors, is highly recommended to all separation scientists, colloid and surface chemists, and chemical engineers. "

---Separation and Purification Methods
