Fundamentals of interfacial and colloid science Vol III: Liquid-fluid interfaces

J. Lyklema

    Research output: Book/ReportBookAcademic


    This volume deals with various aspects of surface tensions and interfacial tensions. Together with the phenomenon of adsorption (enrichment of molecules at interfaces), these tensions constitute the basic characteristics of interfaces. The authors try to keep the treatment systematic and deductive. Recurrent features are that each chapter begins, as much as possible, with the general thermodynamic and/or statistical thermodynamic foundations and the various phenomena are presented in order of increasing complexity. The requirement that the work be both a reference and a textbook is reflected in its being comprehesive as far as the fundamentals are concerned and in its didactic style.
