This is a completely revised, reorganised, and updated second edition of the classic textbook on colloid science, provided for the first time in a single volume.
Colloid science is the study of systems involving small particles of one substance suspended in another. Suspensions of liquids form the basis of a wide variety of systems of scientific and technological importance including paints, inks, ceramics, cosmetics, soils, biological cells, and many food preparations. Although concentrating on systems involving suspensions of solids in water, the development here is made in terms which can be readily extended to the other less frequently encountered systems.
The book explains the principles of colloid science, and provides a clear account of the fundamental physical and chemical concepts on which our understanding of colloidal systems depends. The accent is on making the theories accessible by providing all necessary development.

Dr Robert J. Hunter, School of Chemistry, University of Sydney, NSA 2006 Australia. firstname.lastname@example.orgReview:
"What do everyday materials like milk, smoke, hairspray, ink, paint, ice cream, insulating foam and cement have in common? They are all examples of colloids. Quite simply, a colloid is a dispersion of one material (dispersed phase) in another (dispersion medium). The key parameter is the size of the objects comprising the dispersed phase. They are larger (around 1nm) than ordinary molecules, but small enough (few µm) not to settle under gravity. ... This book is not light reading but is an authoritative treatise of the whole area. It is a book that will be 'dipped' into from time to time, with the reader finding a clear and complete description of the particular area. It is well written and annotated with suitable exercises in each chapter. I recommend it to research students and other scientists in the fields of colloid science, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and food science."--Chemistry & Industry
