About this book


This book is a manual of measurement of colloids and interfaces designed especially for new researchers who have just begun research on these topics. The book is written by active researchers in the field of colloids and interfacial chemistry, based on the practical experience of the authors. In each chapter, the key points of measurement, how to analyze data correctly, points to be careful about, and merits of a particular method are concisely explained from the point of view of the readers. 

Not only in industries such as cosmetics and pharmaceuticals but also in academic studies of nanotechnology, correct understanding of colloid and interface phenomena is vital because the properties of these items, however small, are affected by the nature of interfaces. This book will be particularly useful for researchers who are not yet fully confident of the measurement techniques that are clearly explained here.

About the editors

Masahiko Abe received his PhD degree from the University of Tokyo. He retired from the Faculty of Science and Technology, Tokyo University of Science in 2014, and is now a professor at the Institute for Science and Technology, at the same university. His interests include surfactant sciences, such as synthesis and properties of hybrid surfactant, Gemini surfactant, colloidal assemblies (micro emulsions, emulsions, liposomes, niosoaps, micro capsules, liquid crystals). His current research focuses on applying liposomes in non-DDS fields (upgrading of various polymers) and on glucose fuel batteries.
