Bubble and Drop Interfacesby R. Miller and L. Liggieri.
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
The studies summarize the current understanding of interfacial studies based on the properties of bubbles and drops, review routine research methods such as bubble pressure, drop profile, and drop volume tensiometry, but also describes specific processes such as rising bubbles in solutions and in flotation. The topics include calculation methods for determining surface tensions in drop profile analysis tensiometry, capillary pressure tensiometry and interfacial dilational rheology, measuring the surface tension of polymer melts in supercritical fluids, particle-bubble interaction in flotation, emulsification with micro-structured membranes and micro-engineered systems, and the interfacial mass transfer of growing drops in liquid-liquid systems.

The book aims at describing the most important experimental methods for characterizing liquid interfaces, such as drop profile analysis, bubble pressure and drop volume tensiometry, capillary pressure technique, and oscillating drops and bubbles. Besides the details of experimental set ups, also the underlying theoretical basis is presented in detail. In addition, a number of applications based on drops and bubbles is discussed, such as rising bubbles and the very complex process of flotation. Also wetting, characterized by the dynamics of advancing contact angles is discussed critically. Special application like a double capillary arrangement for single drop manipulations, and the so-called fibre drop analyzer are presented as excellent examples for the use of drops in interfacial science.
