The Encyclopedia of Surface and Colloid Science draws together the interface-related aspects of chemistry, materials sciences and engineering, biology, physics, computer sciences, and applied mathematics.

This new edition discusses important advancements made in the last decade or so, namely, the understanding of the fundamental theories in colloid and surface science, the development of new and improved methods, and the design of particles–nanoparticles.

With an emerging impetus on topics such as health care and renewable energy, this edition also addresses many fundamental aspects, as well as applications, related to drug design and delivery and the development of highly efficient catalysts including novel ways to generate renewable energy.

Researchers who are pioneers in their respective disciplines provide the current state of knowledge from their research findings, as well as other valuable information, in the introductory sections of each book. Encompassing ten volumes, this new edition continues to provide practitioners with all the information they need to devise or modify processes both for current and new products.
