About this book

Introduction

This book is concerned with the configuration of polymers at the interfacial zone between two other phases or immiscible components. In recent years, developments in technology combined with increased attention from specialists in a wide range of fields have resulted in a considerable increase in our understanding of the behavior of polymers at interfaces. Inevitably these advances have generated a wealth of literature and although there have been numerous reviews, a critical treatment with adequate descriptions of both theory and experiment, including detailed analysis of the two, has been missing. This text hopes to fill this gap, providing a timely and comprehensive account of the field as it stands today.
This long needed work will be invaluable to experts as well as newcomers in the broad field of polymers, interfaces and colloids, both in industry and academia. Whilst industrial laboratories involved in this field will find it indispensable, it will be equally important to anyone with an interest in interfacial polymer or colloidal research.

Reviews

`Not merely a collection of individually prepared reviews but an integrated text ... This reviewer was impressed by the liberal use of illustrations to support the text and the extensive references. The quality of the edition is a credit to the publishers. In this reviewer's opinion, Polymers at Interfaces is one of the best scientific publications to appear in 1993. Consequently, its purchase is highly recommended to those scientists and engineers involved with interfacial phenomena.'
Polymer News
`This new book admirably satisfies the need for a comprehensive and authoritative view...a worthwhile acquisition for the aspiring specialist and a useful reference work.'
Polymer International
`This is definitely a book for the specialist in the field - and for such a specialist it will be extremely valuable.'
Trends in Polymer Science
`...provides a comprehensive and timely addition to the short list of key references on the topic ...'
Journal of American Chemical Society
` This superb volume...aimed at colloid chemists, ...is clearly also of great interest to formulation scientists. ...The authors have written an integrated text, rather than supply a collection of reviews in different chapters. This makes life a lot easier for the reader...'
