About this book

Intended for industrial chemists and chemical engineers, this book offers a concise review of the concepts and techniques applicable to emulsions and dispersions. It describes a wide range of topics under the headings of particulates, interfaces, stability of dispersions and dispersed-phase systems. The text also covers recently-developed computer-based methods which offer fast, precise measurements, such as particle-size distributions by quasi-elastic light scattering, dilational surface elasticity from the damping of ripples, and foam stability by the automatic recording of small pressure differences.
