Environmental Colloids and Particles: Behaviour, Separation and Characterisation

K. Wilkinson and J. Lead

John Wiley & Sons, 2007 [ISBN 0-470-02432-1]

Written by an internationally recognized group of contributors, this book examines, through critical reviews, some of the important novel techniques for characterizing colloidal/ particulate systems. It focuses on techniques that were not examined in previous books in addition to techniques for which major advances have been made in the last decade. In addition, there is substantial critical assessment of the techniques employed for the sampling, size fractionation, and characterization of colloids and particles.

Chemical, physical, and biological processes and interactions involving colloids are described, and particular attention is paid to quantitative approaches that take account of particle heterogeneity and polydispersity. Theoretical and experimental aspects of the methods, as well as the required developments and possible recommendations, are discussed. Each chapter also gives a brief introduction general enough for the nonspecialist.

The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental Systems provides a critical evaluation of the state-of-the-art on physicochemical properties and processes in environmental systems, as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor them. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding of physicochemical functioning of environmental and bioenvironmental systems.
