Format Paperback 200 pages. Applied Colloid and Surface Chemistry Applied Colloid and Surface Chemistry Richard M. Principles of colloid and surface chemistry.

Applied Colloid and Surface Chemistry is a broadintroduction to this interdisciplinary field. Taking a genuinelyapplied approach, with applications drawn from a wide range ofindustries, this book will meet the demands of the student andprofessional currently working in the field.

The text includes keynote sections written by practicingindustrial research scientists, bringing to the reader a wealth ofreal industrial examples. These examples range from water treatmentthrough to soil management as well as examples taken from thecoatings and photographic industries. To aid accessibility, some ofthe more demanding mathematical derivations are separated from themain text, enabling them to be avoided as required.

With carefully structured chapters, starting with learningobjectives, and containing tutorial questions with answers andexplanatory notes, this text is invaluable for undergraduatestaking a first course on colloid and surface chemistry. This bookwill also be suitable to postgraduates and professionals, who needan up-to-date account of the subject.

Love Me
This book was used in a course I took last semester in applied chemistry. I certainly wouldn't be able to understand all of the mathematical portions of the book without the assistance of my instructor. The diagrams are often crude and the calculations and formulas are not very well-explained. However, after taking the course, I have found this book to be an invaluable resource for an undergraduate research project I'm currently working on. The book contains numerous examples from industrial applications of colloid and surface chemistry.
With another text or with an instructor, this book is an excellent resource on colloid chemistry.

I have a Ph.D.degree in physics but working in chemistry. I wanted to learn more about surface and colloid chemistry. This book is concise and reasonable price with a lot of nice conceptual figures/photos. So, I thought this might be a good book to start learning about this topic by myself. Also authors said they wrote this book for 3rd year undergraduate students.

I bought this book but it turned out to be very frustrating textbook,,,,,,,,,, I was stuck even at the beginning of chapter 2. A lot of formula, new technical words, and new concepts are suddenly introduced without explanation, sometimes even without telling what the definition is! For example, character of “gamma” seems to represent surface tension. But I could not find any clear description/definition about gamma in chapter 1 and 2. How can we understand new formula or technical words without explanation/definition? At chapter 2, surface tension is discussed. But authors never clearly describe what surface tension is. Then suddenly they start derivation of Laplace pressure equation. Again, Laplace pressure is introduced without enough explanation about its physical meaning and importance. I could guess the meaning and importance of the Laplace pressure, but if I were undergraduate student, I am 100% sure that I would be stuck here totally. At the same time, authors are discussing spherical bubble, but in the formula, they suddenly introduce “two” radius of R1 and R2 although until then they are discussing completely spherical bubble! It is enough to confuse undergraduate students. Organization of the text is also quite poor. This textbook is not like “telling a story”. I had to read text for several times to understand what authors try to tell.

It is pity, although this textbook contains a lot of nice conceptual figures/photos, text and organization are quite poor.

This book claims that it has taken a genuine applied approach, with applications drawn from a wide range of industries, and thus the book meets the demands of the student and professional currently working in the field.

Further, it is claimed that the text includes keynote sections written by practicing industrial research scientists.

It is also supposed to be useful for undergraduates taking a first course on colloid and surface chemistry.

But how does the book look like after one has bought it based on these claims.

Let us first consider the Figures as used throughout the book.

As in any technical book, the figure is supposed to catch the eye such that the reader is inspired to read the text.

In this book most of the Figures are very poorly drawn and some even are incorrect. Thus a reader has to redraw these figures in order to make any sense at all.

But who wants to redraw Figures in a book after one has paid over 100 USD.

The text looses its value if the Figures are poor in details.

Thus one may conclude that the book in its present form should never have been launched with these poor qualities.

It is not recommended to waste money on such a poor quality book, especially considering that one of the authors is a very well-known scientist.

Great concise text to supplement a more detailed text. Has great figures and diagrams for the visual learner. Well worth its price.
