From the Back Cover:

Soft matter materials include polymers, colloids, emulsions,amphiphiles, surfactants, membranes, liquid crystals andbiomaterials. Although these materials seem very different, theyhave common structural and dynamic properties that are somewherebetween those of crystalline solids and simple molecular liquidsand gases. Soft matter is an interdisciplinary subject drawing notonly from physics, chemistry and materials science but also frombiology, biochemistry and engineering. These materials have a widerange of applications, such as in structural and packagingmaterials, foams and adhesives, detergents and cosmetics, paints,food additives and biological materials.

Written in an “easy-to-follow style”, this textbookprovides an introduction to this exciting subject with chapterscovering natural and synthetic polymers, colloids, surfactants,biological soft matter and liquid crystals and the many and variedapplications of these materials. It has been newly edited and haschapters with updated coverage of recent aspects of polymerscience. A series of questions and answers is also provided at theend of each chapter. The book contains a new chapter on biologicalsoft matter, which adds significantly to the discussion ofproteins, DNA and lipid membranes in the previous edition.

The book will appeal to students of polymer, biomaterial,colloid, surface and interface science. Experienced researchers inthe field will also find this a good introductory text for revisingtheir knowledge of the basics.
