While Volume I stands as an essentially complete advanced textbook of colloidal science, Volume II extends the material to include important new areas, and develops some of the topics in much greater depth. An introductory chapter on the theory of liquids describes the concept of correlation functions and the use of Fourier transforms to analyse the scattering of light and neutrons by colloidal systems. Absorption is given detailed coverage and a chapter on electrokinetics introduces a new approach to time-dependent processes in the double layer. The principles of double layer theory are also used to review the behavior of thin films and emulsions. A final chapter on the rheology of colloidal suspensions calls on many of the concepts developed earlier to bring some cohesion to this important and rapidly developing field.

Dr Robert J. Hunter, School of Chemistry, University of Sydney, NSA 2006 Australia. firstname.lastname@example.orgReview:
"What do everyday materials like milk, smoke, hairspray, ink, paint, ice cream, insulating foam and cement have in common? They are all examples of colloids. Quite simply, a colloid is a dispersion of one material (dispersed phase) in another (dispersion medium). The key parameter is the size of the objects comprising the dispersed phase. They are larger (around 1nm) than ordinary molecules, but small enough (few µm) not to settle under gravity. ... This book is not light reading but is an authoritative treatise of the whole area. It is a book that will be 'dipped' into from time to time, with the reader finding a clear and complete description of the particular area. It is well written and annotated with suitable exercises in each chapter. I recommend it to research students and other scientists in the fields of colloid science, chemical engineering, pharmaceutical and food science."--Chemistry & Industry
