Emulsion science is rapidly developing due to its practical importance and the fundamental challenges that it
offers. Due to its complexity, there is still a significant lack of understanding about emulsions. With its
comprehensive and rigorous approach, Emulsions: Structure, Stability and Interactions is the perfect
'stand-alone' source of information for scientists looking to obtain up-to-date knowledge about the
fundamentals of emulsion science and those looking to familiarize themselves with the subject in greater detail.
While each chapter presents a concise review on a specific topic, the book offers a consistent presentation of the
important physical concepts relevant to emulsions.
- Full and comprehensive presentations
- Rigorous approach to each topic, providing in-depth information
- Acts as a 'stand-alone' source of information
Readership: Physical scientists and chemical engineers in academia and industry and graduate students involved
in colloid and emulsion science.
