Two key words define the scope of this book: 'ultrasound' and 'colloids'. Historically, there has been little real communication between practitioners in these two fields. Although there is a large body of literature devoted to ultrasound phenomenon in colloids, there is little recognition that such phenomena may be of real importance for both the development and applications of colloid science. On the other side, colloid scientists have not embraced acoustics as an important tool for characterizing colloids. The lack of any serious dialogue between these scientific fields is the biggest motivation behind this book.

Key Features

- Covers in detail this multidisciplinary field combining acoustics, electroacoustics, colloid science, analytical chemistry and rheology

- Provides a bibliography with more than 1,000 references

- Presents theories and their experimental verification, as well as analysis of the methods and hardware pertaining to applications such as pharmaceuticals, ceramics, and polymers 


Colloid chemists, physical chemists, chemical engineers, nanotechnologists, food chemists, and pharmaceutical chemists

About the Authors

Andrei S. Dukhin Author

CEO, Dispersion Technology, Inc., NY. As a CEO and Co-Founder of the Dispersion Technology Inc , I have been a leader in the development of a new technology for characterizing complex liquids that employ ultrasound for characterizing interfacial chemistry, particle size, rheological properties of said systems. In addition to the theory of the measurement and instrumentation by itself we have created the following applications for this new technology. There are 500 instruments based on these principles sold by us in 30 countries. Author of the two previous Editions of this book that were quite successful

Philip J. Goetz Author

P Goetz has an Electrical Engineering bachelor degree (MIT) and an MS in S Computer Science (New York University). Between 1960–1970, he was an Engineering Group leader developing doppler radar technology for military airborne navigation and image recognition hardware for airborne terrain guidance. He has been President, chief scientist and founder of new venture for developing electro-optical instrumentation for characterizing the zeta potential of dilute colloids and between 1996 – 2010 he was Chairman and co-founder of Dispersion Technology for development of ultrasound instrumentation for complex characterization of concentrated colloids. Co-author of the first two editions of this book and retired since 2010.
