Colloid and Interface Science, Volume IV: Hydrosols and Rheology is the fourth volume of papers presented at the International Conference on Colloids and Surfaces, held in San Juan, Puerto Rico on June 21-25, 1976.

This volume contains 57 chapters and begins with reviews on colloidal dispersions, interacting latex particles, reversible adsorption of hydrosols, and stability of colloidal kaolinite suspensions. The next chapters deal with determination of colloidal stability, the microstructure of latex particles, instrumentation, and analytical methods for rheology measurement. These topics are followed by discussions of polymer adsorption, kinetic aspects of rheology, and measurement of important parameters in adsorption. This text also explores the properties of surface rheological models, the analysis of sedimentation velocity, and the application of hydrodynamic chromatography. The remaining chapters look into the colloid chemical aspects of drilling fluid rheology, the rheology of dilute polymer solutions, colloidal sol flow, and the shear thickening of colloidal dispersions,

This book will prove useful to chemical engineers and other related professions who are interested in colloidal dispersion, rheology, and hydrosols.
