The first modern approach to relate fundamental research to the applied science of colloids, this series bridges academic research and industrial applications, thus providing the information vital to both. Written by the very best scientists in their respective disciplines, the five volumes are edited by an internationally recognized expert on this topic.
This volume describes the role of colloids in cosmetics and personal care, highlighting the importance of fundamental research in practical applications.
Of interest to electrochemists, physical and surface chemists, materials scientists, and physicists.
