Advances in Measurement and Control of Colloidal Processes compiles a selection of papers presented at the International Symposium on Colloid and Surface Engineering held in San Diego in August 1990. This book emphasizes practical measurement and exploitation of the principles of surface and interface science that embrace a wide range of industrial sectors. The topics are arranged according to specific measurement techniques or phenomena. The focus includes processing and characterization of aggregated materials; developments in instrumentation for monitoring and characterization of dispersions; controlled particle formation technologies; mineral and inorganic colloids-micro and macroscopic characterization methods; measurement and simulation of complex colloidal processes; and advances and problems in micron and sub-micron sizing techniques. This text is a useful reference for engineering students and industrial practitioners who conduct research on colloid and surface engineering.
