Forty years have passed since the publication of three famous books bearing the same title—Colloid Science. The first was by A. E. Alexander and P. Johnson,1 the second by J. W. McBain,2 and the third by H. R. Kruyt.3 Since then, colloid science has generated a number of new but related fields, such as studies of polymers, semiconductors, liquid crystals, membranes, and vesicles. Micellar aggregates have served as an important bridge between microscopic and macroscopic chemical species in the development of new technologies. The importance of colloid science is now fully recognized, and it has become established as the basic foundation of nearly all fields of solution science.
