Editorial Reviews

Review

"Born of decades of diverse experience performing research and teaching in the field of surface and colloid science, Prof. Berg's new textbook is a must buy for students just entering the field, as well as for experts. I find myself frequently referring to the book as a reference when writing grants. Prof. Berg's organization of the subject matter, combined with his exquisitely clear descriptions that provide a molecular level understanding of phenomena, have set a new standard for textbooks in the field." -- Journal of Colloid and Interface Science

"it serves as an excellent entry into the field, giving the student more than enough support to understand the concepts ... Anyone working in the area of colloids/interfaces should have a copy of this book. It makes an excellent reference book if you are an advanced practitioner and an excellent text if you are just getting started." --Chemical Engineering Education

I have taken two interface and colloids courses (one with Professor Berg), and am currently a professor at Duke in the area of chemistry and nanomaterials. Dr. Berg's book, resulting from decades of diverse experience performing research and teaching in the field, is an exquisitely clear introduction to interfaces, colloids, and their central role in nanoscience and everyday life. I have reviewed many books in the area of nanoscience and colloids, this is by far the best, it has no peer. Further, as an "expert" I find it the most comprehensive reference for information on the topic. Dr. Berg manages to describe things in a way students can intuitively understand, but he also derives the equations necessary for quantitative prediction of complex phenomena. After taking his course several years ago, I find myself often referring to his book when I want to refresh my knowledge in an area, or learn something new (before it was published this year he sold it to students for his class - I have treasured this book and have often told him he should publish it). The "fun things to do" at the end of each chapter are indeed fun, but also extremely simple and illustrative experiments one can show a class, or do oneself, to further enhance one's understanding of how molecular-level interactions control the world around us. No complicated materials are needed - want to measure the thickness of the water-air interface? All you need is a laser pointer and a piece of paper. Ever wonder why you can fill a cup of water over the brim? Why cleaning products work better than water? Berg will give you the complete molecular-level understanding, no matter what your background.Read more ›

I took Professor John Berg's Surface and Colloid Science course as an undergraduate student about six years ago. The course materials, which I presume are a precursor to this book, are concise, thorough, and masterfully conveyed. The knowledge gained from the course was instrumental in my success during a career at a leading national laboratory after graduation. Professor Berg has a true and unique gift for writing and teaching. Any student would be lucky to learn from this book.

This is a great compilation of the complete subject matter. It brings the reader along from the beginning thinking on this subject and builds from chapter to chapter. I think it a valuable reference book for those doing complex techincal thinking on interfaces and colloids. It also is a great text for those learning the subject matter. The author has a great way of bringing in practical examples of how to apply the theory. A great addition to my technical library.

By H. Stanjek on December 16, 2012
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book covers all current aspects of interface and colloid science and fills nicely the gap between Lyklemas series on Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science and much shorter books (e.g., those of Butt et al. or that by Hiemenz & Rajagopalan). It is very well written and has a very pleasant layout and typography. Maybe the best argument for purchasing this book is the well-balanced mix between figures and equations presented in a well-balanced mix of examples with theoretical background. The theory goes sufficiently deep into detail and will inform graduate students (and those beyond this level) very well. Finally the price is an argument!

Prof. John Berg has spent years teaching courses in surfaces and colloid science. He has consolidated his curriculum here, combined it with his broad research perspectives, and crafted this textbook with the communication skills that have made him a decorated educator. This book will make an excellent platform for teaching these topics to undergraduates in chemical engineering and related fields. Buy it and tell others.
