Self-Assembled Structures Properties and Applications in Solution and on Surfaces Edited by

Jingcheng Hao Shandong University, People’s Republic of China

Surface Charging and Points of Zero Charge Marek Kosmulski Technical University of Lublin, Poland

Self-assembly is a process in which a disordered system forms an organized structure without external direction. Examples include the formation of molecular crystals, lipid bilayers, and polymer brushes. This book reviews the fabrication and use of various self-assembled materials. In particular, the author pays special attention to self-assembled structures when in solution and in contact with surfaces, as such interactions can have a pronounced impact on their properties and applications. The text covers bulk solution and surfaces, assembled structures, colloid particles, polymer capsules, carbon nanotubes, as well as layer-bylayer assembly techniques.

Marek Kosmulski, a leading authority in the field of surface chemistry provides chemists with a detailed and specific resource on the points of zero charge of oxides. This work presents PZC data on well-defined specimens of materials sorted by trademark, manufacturer, location, and specific recipe. The text emphasizes the comparison between particular results obtained for different portions of the same or very similar material and synthesizes the information published in research reports.

Edited by

John C. Riviere and Sverre Myhra Oxford University, Yarnton. UK

“This handbook on surface and interface analysis can help to create that knowledgeable person … sufficient in-depth technical information to satisfy those who want to know the details … Material scientists, engineers, materials researchers, or anyone who needs information about a material obtained using surface analysis methods will find this handbook an excellent resource for determining the best approach and the right techniques to use.” —IEEE Electrical Insulation Magazine, Vol. 26, No. 3

KSB Consultant, Charlottenlund, Denmark

Grounded in real applications, this volume provides an introduction to the fundamentals and applications of surface and colloid chemistry. Presenting an overview of liquid surfaces, the book also describes the liquid – solid interface phenomena, colloid chemistry systems, emulsion science aspects, and more complex issues. Data from realworld examples are provided to encourage comprehension of both fundamental theory and the ever-increasing industrial applications.

Introduction to Electrical Interfacial Phenomena Edited by

Handbook of Surface and Colloid Chemistry Third Edition Edited by

K. S. Birdi KSB Consultant, Charlottenlund, Denmark

K.S. Birdi KSB Consultant, Charlottenlund, Denmark

Written by bestselling author and internationally renowned researcher K.S. Birdi, this volume offers comprehensive coverage of the field of electrical double layer (EDL) research. It discusses theoretical models used with EDL and demonstrates how they can be applied to typically encountered realworld problems including those that must be considered in modern industrial applications. The book provides bonus material on advanced theory that is separate from the main text.

The third edition of this bestseller covers the latest advances in this rapidly growing field. Focusing on analyses and critical evaluation, contributors offer their perspectives on various topics including micellar systems, microemulsions, colloidal assemblies, thermodynamics of polymer solutions, oil recovery and production, and hydrogen bonding. In addition to the expanded treatment of several important areas, this book adds new subjects that cover the hydrophobic effect, water purification, and emerging topics in nanoscience, and nanotechnology.
