Colloid Formation and Growth: A Chemical Kinetics Approach focuses on the science of colloid dynamics developed from the viewpoint of chemical kinetics.
This book is composed of seven chapters and begins with a discussion of the two physical loss problems of kinetic interest, namely, the diffusional loss to the walls of reaction system and gravitational settling. Considerable chapters describe the processes of homogeneous and heterogeneous nucleation, condensation, coagulation, vaporization, and spontaneous fracture. These chapters provide simplified, easy-to-use, approximate formulas for these processes. The final chapter emphasizes the calculation of accommodation coefficients of clean liquids, small solid particles, and large solid crystalline.
This book will be of great value to applied chemists, and researchers.
