Since the publication of the first edition of Interfacial Phenomena, the interest in interfaces and surfactants has multiplied, along with their applications. Experimental and theoretical advances have provided scientists with greater insight into the structure, properties, and behavior of surfactant and colloid systems.
Emphasizing equilibrium phenomena, flow, transport, and stability,
Interfacial Phenomena: Equilibrium and Dynamic Effects, Second Edition presents a concise and current summary of the fundamental principles governing interfacial interactions. This new edition features updated and expanded topics in every chapter. It highlights key experimental techniques that have expanded the scope of our understanding, such as in mass transfer, microstructure determination in colloidal dispersions, and surfactant–polymer interactions.
Interfacial Phenomena, Second Edition reflects the progress scientists have made in understanding the surface chemistry and interfacial dynamics of colloid and surfactant systems. The book also illustrates the growing applicability of these systems in a variety of fields including pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, detergents, paints, agricultural chemicals, and foods.
Fundamentals of Interfacial Tension. Fundamentals of Wetting. Contact Angle, and Dispersion. Colloidal Dispersions. Surfactants. Interfaces in Motion: Stability and Wave Motion. Transport Effects on Interfacial Phenomena. Dynamic Interfaces. Size, Shape, Structure, Diffusivity, and Mass Transfer.
