The Colloidal Domain: Where Physics, Chemistry, Biology, and Technology Meet
This new edition provides students and professionals with a comprehensive and up-to-date treatment of colloid science theory, methods, and applications. Emphasizing the molecular interactions that determine the properties of colloidal systems, the authors provide an authoritative account of critical developments in colloid science that have occurred over the past several decades.
Combining all of the best features of a professional reference and a student text, the Second Edition features:
* Concept maps preceding each chapter that put subject matter into perspective.
* Numerous worked examples - many new to this edition - illustrating key concepts.
* More than 250 high-quality illustrations that help clarify processes described.
* A new chapter that integrates the development of colloid science and technology in the twentieth century with challenges facing the field today.
The Colloidal Domain, Second Edition is an indispensable professional resource for chemists and chemical engineers working in an array of industries, including petrochemicals, food, agricultural, ceramic, coatings, forestry, and paper products. It is also a superb educational tool for advanced undergraduate and graduate-level students of physical chemistry and chemical engineering.

The energy per unit area is then A a0\ zb JNAc Problem: For two strongly
immiscible liquids with w = 6RT estimate the interracial tension and compare it to
the value of the surface tension calculated for CCl4. Assume that a0 = 3 x 10-

To apply these equations to such systems, we employ macroscopic concepts,
such as density, surface tension, and radius of curvature. How far can we trust
their validity? Recent experiments using the surface forces apparatus (see
Chapter 6 ...
A vertical force balance shows that the weight of the meniscus must equal the
upward force provided by the surface. This force in turn equals the vertical
component of the surface tension (y cos 6, where 6 equals the contact angle)
times the ...

If you want a book about colloids from the most well-verse and clear-thinking guru in the field, Hakan Wennerstrom, this is it, particularly if you need mastery of the mathematics and modeling. Wennerstrom does not fall prey to the many conceptual errors that are common in the field, such as double-counting hydrophobic interaction terms and the like. And if you want to delve deeper into any one of the concepts in the book, you can be sure that you'll find a publication from Wennerstrom and the Univ. Lund Phys. Chem. group that goes far deeper, both in terms of mathematics and application of the concepts. So there really shouldn't be any complaining that these 632 pages don't go deep enough, the literature is all on PubMed and will be understood once you've read this manifesto.
