Series: Studies in Interface Science

This series is devoted to contributions describing and reviewing recent theoretical and experimental developments on interfaces and processes involving interfaces.

It covers progress in the following fields:

• interfacial phenomena

• monolayers and organized systems

• colloidal systems

• thin films between solids

• impact of interfacial phenomena.

Emphasis will be on the scientific content, although new experimental methods will also be described in this series. Each volume will be devoted to a single subject.


Specialists and graduate students involved in studies in interface science.

Book Series: Stable Gas-in-Liquid Emulsions

Most recent volume

Volume 19. Stable Gas-in-Liquid Emulsions

Published: 21st April 2011 Authors: Joseph D'Arrigo Joseph D'Arrigo

This title is a greatly expanded and updated second edition of the original volume published by Elsevier in 1986. New material has been integrated with the original content in an organized and comprehensive manner.

Five new chapters have been included, which review over one and a half decades of research into lipid-coated microbubbles (LCM) and their medical applications. The new chapters contain much experimental data, which is examined in detail, along with relevant current literature.

This current edition builds on the original work in effectively filling the gap in the market for a comprehensive account of the surfactant stabilization of coated microbubbles.
