Colloidal Foundations of Nanoscience, Second Edition explores the theory and concepts of colloid chemistry and its applications to nanoscience and nanotechnology. The book provides the essential conceptual and methodological tools to approach nano-research issues. The authors’ expertise in colloid science will contribute to the understanding of basic issues involved in research. Each chapter covers a classical subject of colloid science in simple and straightforward terms, addressing its relevance to nanoscience before introducing case studies. Sections cover colloids rheology, electrokinetics, nanoparticle tracking analysis (NTA), bio-layer interferometry, and the treatment of inter-particle interactions and colloidal stability.
- Gathers, in a single volume, information currently scattered across various sources
- Provides a straightforward introduction on theoretical concepts and in-depth case studies to help readers understand molecular mechanisms and master advanced techniques
- Includes examples showing the applications of classical concepts to real-world cutting-edge research
- Edited and written by highly respected quality scientists
Students and (early career) researchers in chemical engineering, (physical and colloidal) chemistry, physics, biology or materials science entering the field of colloid science

Debora Berti obtained her Laurea Degree in Chemistry, Summa cum Laude, from the University of Florence in 1993 and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the same University in 1997. She has been Visiting Student at the ETH (Zurich) during 1994-1995 and post-doctoral fellow for CSGI (Italian center for Colloid Science) until 2000.
In 2000 she joined the University of Florence, where she teaches Physical Chemistry of Nanosystems and Colloid Chemistry in undergraduate courses. She is also member of the Board of PhD School in Chemical Sciences.
Her background in physical chemistry of surfactant self-assembly has gradually shifted throughout the years to self-assembly of bio-inspired and biorelevant functional amphiphiles, with particular focus on nucleolipids.
The structural and dynamic characterization of nucleolipidi self-assemblies have been her core research themes in the early stages of her scientific activity
Currently, her research topics include :
Nanostructured fluids for the Conservation of Cultural Heritage
Hybrid Nanoparticle/lipid assemblies for stimuli responsive drug delivery
Interaction of nanostructured assemblies with model membranes
She is author of more than 70 published or in press research papers.
She has been member of ECIS (European Colloid and Interface Society) since 2000, ACS, Italian Chemical Society, European Neutron Scattering Association, Italian Society for Neutron Scattering, IACIS.
She is the President Elect of the European Colloid and Interface Society.

Gerardo Palazzo graduated in Chemistry at University of Bari and obtained his PhD in “Applied Biochemistry and Chemistry” at University of Molise. In 1989-1990 he was invited scientist at Institut für Polymere - Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) of Zürich (CH). In 1991 he joined the University of Bari where he is associate professor of Physical-Chemistry in the Department of Chemistry. Since 1991 his teaching subjects have been –colloid and interfaces-, thermodynamics, and kinetics for degree courses in Chemistry, Biotechnology and Material Sciences. Currently he is the President of the degree courses (BS+MS) in Chemistry of the University of Bari. Since 2000 he has been coordinator of several research projects of the Bari University and of the Consorzio per lo Sviluppo dei Sistemi a Grande Interfase (CSGI-Florence He has published more than 100 papers in international peer reviewed journals and books. His core research activities deal with the characterization of complex fluids by means of physicochemical techniques (NMR, DLS, SAXS, SANS, etc.) and presently his research includes colloidal aspects of biophysics and biosensing.
