Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science

Soft Colloids

Volume V is the counterpart of Volume IV and treats hydrophilic colloids and related items. Contains edited contributions on steric stabilization, depletion, polyelectrolytes, proteins at interfaces, association colloids, microemulsions, thin films, foams and emulsions. J. Lyklema is coauthor of two chapters and general editor. Other authors include: G.J. Fleer, F.A.M. Leermakers, M.A. Cohen Stuart, W. Norde, J.A.G. Buijs, J.C. Eriksson, T.Sottmann, R. Strey, D. Platikanov, D. Ekserova, V.Bergeron and P.Walstra.

Audience
Physical chemists working in Colloid, Interface, and Surface science; Industrial/Applied scientists in pigment, emulsion, dispersion, and powder research; Pharmaceutical chemists in membranes and drug formation.
