Editorial Reviews

Review

High praise from peers . . .contains valuable information on many topics of interest to food rheologists and polymer scientists. . ..should be in the libraries of academic and industrial food research organizations.
---Journal of Texture Studies
. . .the treatment is unique. The most striking, perhaps, is the introduction of short 'vignettes. . ..' which expand on the main point being made in the text. This is a fine revision of a fine book. Highly recommended.
---Journal of Dispersion Science and Technology
. . .an excellent textbook, excellently organised, clearly written and well laid out.
---Chromatographia
Controlled release scientists will find the book of major help in solving problems related with diffusion, sedimentation, osmosis, dispersion, colloidal suspensions, light scattering, surface tension, double-layer theory, electronkinetic phenomena and colloidal stability. . ..Recommended.
---Journal of Controlled Release

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent textbook for both undergraduate courses (for which it is intended) and for first-year graduate courses. The new edition contains new material on recent developments in colloid science and instrumental techniques, polymer-induced forces, rheology of dispersions and scattering techniques. The many 'Vignettes' included in this edition bring out the interdisciplinary nature of the subject, its impact in medical and biological sciences as well as in numerous engineering areas, and the exciting aspects of colloid science that are not highlighted in other textbooks. There are numerous worked-out examples, review questions at the end of each chapter and annotated references. Highly recommended.

Format: Hardcover
As a teacher of these topics I found this book an excellent one.A very good coverage of fundamentals such as surface and interfacial tension,intermolecular and colloidal interactions, colloidal stability, liophobic and liophylic colloids,electrokinetics phenomena. All these complex topics and more are treated in a very clear and rigorous way. I strongly reccomend this book.

I have never taken colloidal chemistry in college. So, when I had to pick this topic up to understand the dispersion system I was working on at work, I was fortunate enough to find this book. This book taught me everything I needed to know about colloidal systems. It's well organized and intuitive. Highly recommended for students in the field

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent, first-level introduction to colloids and is better than any others available in the market. The vignettes in the book alone are worth the price! Suitable for self-study!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Bought this as a supplement to my graduate courses in surface chemistry. While there is better text available for graduate-level study (Adamson and Gast), this book does a superb job of laying the foundation in colloids and surface chemistry. With a strong background in physical chemistry, the subject matter will be a breeze to learn. I struggled with the courses until I picked this up. I applaud the author for a fine job in organization and layout of material, as well as a basic delivery of theory.
