Summaries
Back Cover Copy
The first book to provide the tools you need to understand interfacial chemical interactions Bridging three different fields: nanoscience, bioscience, and environmental science, Electrical Phenomena at Interfaces and Biointerfaces is the first book to present and explain the tools for understanding and analyzing the phenomena that take place at phase boundaries. Beginning with a discussion of the fundamental electrostatic occurrences at interfaces, the book provides detailed descriptions of the central theories on electrical double-layer interactions around and between charged particles, as well as electrokinetics and other topical subjects. Later sections address a range of electrokinetic phenomena, as well as the application of colloid and interface theories in nanomaterials, fuel cells, electronic materials, biomaterials, stems cells, microbiology, water purification, and elsewhere. In addition, the book explores new, emerging concepts of "soft particles" and "soft interfaces," which serve as models for biological colloids and humic substances. Designed for use by physical, surface, and colloid chemists, chemical engineers, bioscientists, and experts working in related fields such as materials sciences, the book is an invaluable resource for professionals working in academia and industry alike.
Bowker Data Service Summary
This title examines the fundamental electrostatics at interfaces and includes a detailed description of theories dealing with electrical double layers around a charged particle, electrokinetics, and electrical double layer interaction between charged particles.
Main Description
This book bridges three different fields: nanoscience, bioscience, and environmental sciences. It starts with fundamental electrostatics at interfaces and includes a detailed description of fundamental theories dealing with electrical double layers around a charged particle, electrokinetics, and electrical double layer interaction between charged particles. The stated fundamentals are provided as the underpinnings of sections 2, 3, and 4, which address electrokinetic phenomena that occur in nanoscience, bioscience, and environmental science. Applications in nanomaterials, fuel cells, electronic materials, biomaterials, stems cells, microbiology, water purificiaion, and humic substances are discussed.
