Interfacial Chemistry of Rocks and Soils

Noemi M. Nagy, Jozsef Konya
June 16, 2017

Knowledge of the basic interactions that take place between geological materials and different substances is the first step in understanding the effects of adsorption and other interfacial processes on the quality of rocks and soils, and on driving these processes towards a beneficial or neutral...

Handbook of Surface and Interface Analysis: Methods for Problem-Solving, Second Edition

John C. Riviere, Sverre Myhra
June 14, 2017

The original Handbook of Surface and Interface Analysis: Methods for Problem-Solving was based on the authors’ firm belief that characterization and analysis of surfaces should be conducted in the context of problem solving and not be based on the capabilities of any individual technique. Now, a...

Interfacial Electroviscoelasticity and Electrophoresis

Jyh-Ping Hsu, Aleksandar M. Spasic
June 14, 2017

In the 20 years since the pilot plant experiments used to develop the concept of electroviscoelasticity, inroads have been made in the understanding of its many related processes. Interfacial Electroviscoelasticity and Electrophoresis meets a massive scientific challenge by presenting deeper...

Surface and Interfacial Aspects of Cell Adhesion

Alain Carré, Kash L. Mittal
May 22, 2017

Cell adhesion comes into play in almost all domains of life. The range of situations in which it occurs, involving organisms, living tissues, microorganisms or single cells, is endless. Cell adhesion is involved in the binding of a cell to a surface, extracellular matrix, or another cell using cell...

Characterization of Nanocomposites: Technology and Industrial Applications

Frank Abdi, Mohit Garg
April 03, 2017

These days, advanced multiscale hybrid materials are being produced in the industry, studied by universities, and used in several applications. Unlike for macromaterials, it is difficult to obtain the physical, mechanical, electrical, and thermal properties of nanomaterials because of the scale....

Magneto Luminous Chemical Vapor Deposition

Hirotsugu Yasuda
March 29, 2017

The magneto luminous chemical vapor deposition (MLCVD) method is the perfect example of the "front-end green process." It employs an entirely new process that expends the minimum amount of materials in gas phase, yields virtually no effluent, and therefore requires no environmental remediation....
