The applications of colloids and interfaces are ubiquitous in human civilization. Beginning with edibles and personal hygiene products, the applications of colloid and interface science are visible in large-scale industrial undertakings such as petroleum recovery, manufacture of heavy chemicals and coating processes. In recent times, it has grown into a multidisciplinary subject meant for study by the chemical engineers, biotechnologists, chemists, physicists and environmental scientists. This book provides a thorough understanding of the fundamental concepts and applications of colloid and interface science. It deals with the colloid chemistry and interfacial phenomena at both fluid-fluid and solid-fluid interfaces. The emerging areas of colloid and interface science such as nanomaterials and nanotechnology have also been discussed. The book is designed as a textbook for B.Tech. students of chemical engineering. Besides, it would also be useful to the students of biotechnology, chemistry, chemical engineering, food science, physics and environmental science, scientists and engineers working in this field will also find this book useful. Explained with a large number of figures and solved problems, and with the aid of many unsolved problems, this text should prove to be very helpful for understanding the subject.
