Emulsion Formation and Stability (Topics in Colloid and Interface Science)by Tharwat F. Tadros
Synopses & Reviews
As materials with particle sizes on the nanoscale displaying new or improved properties, colloids play many versatile roles. They may have different colors depending on the current size, carry coatings with functions such as antigens for protein recognition, influence the morphology or durability of composites they are part of, serve as tiny containers for drugs, or as nanoreactors in which chemical reactions are conducted. Due to this diversity, colloidal chemistry involves a great number of disciplines, including chemistry, physics, materials sciences, and biology.
From the contents:
* Formulation of Emulsions with some Emphasis on Drug Delivery
* Interfacial Phenomena Covering Adsorption and Conformation of Surfactants and Polymers
* Interaction Forces between Emulsion Droplets
* Preparation of Emulsions
* Structure and Rheology
* New Emulsifiers
For surface, physical and polymer chemists, materials scientists, and chemical engineers.
The importance of emulsification techniques, their use in the production of nanoparticles for biomedical applications as well as application of rheological techniques for studying the interaction between the emulsion droplets is gathered in this reference work.
Written by some of the top scientists within their respective fields, this book covers such topics as emulsions, nano-emulsions, nano-dispersions and novel techniques for their investigation. It also considers the fundamental approach in areas such as controlled release, drug delivery and various applications of nanotechnology.
Advances in the fundamentals of colloid and interface science have resulted in progress in several important areas such as nanotechnology, smart colloids and preparation of materials with unique properties.
This book highlights the recent fundamental developments as well as the future challenges in this area and covers a number of topics such as emulsions, nano-emulsions, nano-dispersions and the developments in novel techniques for their investigations.
As well as taking account of such areas as controlled release, drug delivery and various applications of nanotechnology, this book provides researchers and technologists with progress basics as well as enabling them to keep pace with developments.
About the Author
After finishing his PhD at Alexandria University, Tharwat Tadros was appointed lecturer in Physical Chemistry (1962-1966) at the same University. Between 1966 and 1969, he spent a sabbatical at the Agricultural University of Wageningen and T.N.O in Delft, the Netherlands. Thereafter he worked at I.C.I. and ZENECA until 1994, where he researched various fields of surfactants, emulsions, suspensions, microemulsions, wetting spreading and adhesion, and rheology. During that period he was also appointed visiting professor at Imperial College London, Bristol University and Reading University. In 1992, he was elected President of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Science. Since leaving ZENECA, Dr Tadros has worked as a consultant for various industries and also given several courses in his specialized field. He is the recipient of two medals from the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, and has more than 250 scientific papers to his name.
