Exploring aqueous dispersions and solutions, biopolymer gels, self-assembled amphiphillic structures, and interfacial layers of biopolymers and biological cells, this classroom reference presents a concise introductory treatment of the physicochemical principles that determine interrelated colloidal and interfacial phenomena. Whether deciphering the spontaneous assembly of amphiphilic molecules or the intentional fouling of surfaces for the immobilization of cells in bioreactors, the book devotes special attention to reversible and soft colloids, and discusses the colloidal domain in a historical perspective, the size and distribution of particles, and electrokinetic phenomena, and more.
