Description

This text is both an introduction to the field and a bridge to the more specialist texts that are available, and includes recent ideas that have been developed on the interactions between particles and the concentrated state. It covers the fundamentals of colloid and interface science, placing emphasis on concentrated systems and the ideas associated with them.
  •  Takes a user-friendly, non-mathematical approach
  • Includes the widely used techniques such as rheology in greater depth than other introductory texts
  • Gives many practical examples of colloid and interface science
  • Provides guidance on how to apply new ideas to a number of different systems
