A bestseller in its first edition and now fully updated, this is the definitive handbook for the chemistry of surface and colloidal systems. This edition retains the outstanding organization and wealth of data of its predecessor but reflects the advances, developments, and new research interests of the last few years. Virtually every chapter has been updated by its original author, and the book now includes new sections addressing topics such as enhanced oil recovery, liposomes, and phase equilibria and surfactants. As always, the Handbook of Surface and Colloid Chemistry provides authoritative information in a style and format that form a valuable guide for planning future research.
