"Theng reviews and synthesizes the literature on clay minerals and polymer adsorption, and interactions of clay minerals with synthetic and naturally occurring polymers. His topics include polymer behavior at clay and solid surfaces, uncharged (nonionic) polymers, positively charged polymers (polycations), some practical application of the clay-polymer interaction, polymer-clay nanocomposites, proteins and enzymes, viruses and bacteriophages, and humic substances. He has updated the 1979 first edition to incorporate the substantial developments in clay science that partly result from the application of modern surface analytical, computational, and spectroscopic techniques. He has also added many new illustrations and tabulated data."--Reference and Research Book News, October 2012
