Volume IV (2005) covers preparation, characterization of colloids, stability and interaction between pairs of particles, and in concentrated systems, their rheology and dynamics. This volume contains two chapters written, or co-authored by J. Lyklema and edited contributions by A.P.Philipse, H.P. van Leeuwen, M. Minor, A. Vrij, R.Tuinier and T. van Vliet. The volume is logically followed by Vol V, but is equally valuable as a stand alone reference.

Key Features

* Combined with part V, this volume completes the prestigious series Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science
* Together with volume V this book provides a general physical chemical background to colloid science
* Covers all aspects of particle colloids


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.
