The Handbook of Applied Surface and Colloid Chemistry is a unique reference work that addresses the most important applications, phenomena and analytical techniques of wet surface chemistry. Including an enormous wealth of mainly practically orientated information it is written by an international team of renowned scientists and delivers with authority and experience content that thoroughly covers all the major applications.

Helpfully organised into five parts the two volumes incorporate a double column format and numerous diagrams. The user-friendly structure allows readers to rapidly locate topics of particular interest and the clearly defined sections present the topic in a thorough and comprehensive manner.

Part One: Surface Chemistry in Important Technologies
Covers industrial and domestic uses - from life science-related applications right through to industrial processes.

Part Two: Surfactants
Thoroughly addresses the key properties and applications of the most important surfactants - the main tool in surface and colloid chemistry.

Part Three: Colloidal Systems and Layer Structures at Surfaces
Provides full information on four important colloidal systems such as:
— Solid dispersions (suspensions)
— Foams
— Vesicles and liposomes
— Microemulsions

Part Four: Phenomena in Surface Chemistry
Extensively reviews the important phenomena of foam breaking, solubilization, rheological effects of surfactants, as well as wetting, spreading and penetration.

Part Five: Analysis and Characterization in Surface Chemistry
To assist the researcher focussing on a particular problem the section is organised by surface parameter rather than by method or technique.
