Foam Films and Foams: Fundamentals and Applications

1st Edition

Dotchi Exerowa, Georgi Gochev, Dimo Platikanov, Libero Liggieri, Reinhard Miller
July 19, 2018

This book describes in detail the scientific philosophy of the formation and stabilization-destabilization of foams. It presents all hierarchical steps of a foam, starting from the properties of adsorption layers formed by foaming agents, discussing the properties of foam films as the building...

Chemical Functionalization of Carbon Nanomaterials: Chemistry and Applications

1st Edition

Vijay Kumar Thakur, Manju Kumari Thakur
January 24, 2018

Carbon-based nanomaterials are rapidly emerging as one of the most fascinating materials in the twenty-first century. Chemical Functionalization of Carbon Nanomaterials: Chemistry and Applications provides a thorough examination of carbon nanomaterials, including their variants and how they can be...

Nanoscience: Colloidal and Interfacial Aspects

1st Edition

Victor M. Starov
December 14, 2017

The common perception is that nanoscience is something entirely new, that it sprung forth whole and fully formed like some mythological deity. But the truth is that like all things scientific, nanoscience is the natural result of the long evolution of scientific inquiry. Following a historical...

The Molecular Theory of Adsorption in Porous Solids

1st Edition

Yu. K. Tovbin
October 13, 2017

In the adsorption phenomenon the substances from the external environment the gas or liquid are absorbed by a solid surface (adsorbent). Adsorption is used to separate gaseous and liquid mixtures, for drying and purification of gases and liquids. This reference broadly explores the calculation of...

Bioinspired Superhydrophobic Surfaces: Advances and Applications with Metallic and Inorganic Materials

1st Edition

Frédéric Guittard, Thierry Darmanin
October 06, 2017

Materials with superhydrophobic or related properties are one of the most studied subjects from a theoretical point of view and also for the large range of possible applications, for example, anticorrosion, antibacteria, optical devices, and sensors. The study of natural species with special...

Surfactants in Tribology, Volume 5

1st Edition

Girma Biresaw, K.L. Mittal
September 20, 2017

Surfactants play a critical role in Tribology controlling friction, wear, and lubricant properties such as emulsification, demulsification, bioresistance, oxidation resistance, rust prevention and corrosion resistance. This is a critical topic for new materials and devices particularly those built...

Mechanics of Liquid Nano- and Microdispersed Magnetic Media

1st Edition

V. M. Polunin, A. M. Storozhenko, P.A. Ryapolov
August 04, 2017

This book offers unique coverage of the mechanical properties of nano- and micro-dispersed magnetic fluids. Magnetic fluids are artificially created materials that do not exist in the nature. Researchers developing materials and devices are keenly interested in their "mutually exclusive" properties...

Structure and Functional Properties of Colloidal Systems

1st Edition

Roque Hidalgo-Alvarez
June 16, 2017

Integrating fundamental research with the technical applications of this rapidly evolving field, Structure and Functional Properties of Colloidal Systems clearly presents the connections between structure and functional aspects in colloid and interface science. It explores the physical fundamentals...

Interfacial Chemistry of Rocks and Soils

1st Edition

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

2nd 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

1st Edition

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...

Adhesion Aspects in Dentistry

1st Edition

Matinlinna, Kash L. Mittal
June 14, 2017

Modern adhesive dentistry has numerous applications in cariology, as well as in aesthetic and pediatric dentistry, prosthodontics, implantology, and orthodontics—in essence, in comprehensive dental care. This unique book addresses various ramifications of adhesion and adhesives in the broad domain...
