Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science: Liquid-Fluid Interfaces

Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science: Liquid-Fluid Interfaces Lowest new price: $221.00
Lowest used price: $348.27
List price: $245.00

Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science (FICS) is a standard reference work with an educational nature. The emphasis is on the basic facts and phenomena, which are systematically explained.
FICS aims to make interface and colloid science accessible to a wide audience. Interface and colloid science is an important and fascinating field, but one that is often overlooked and undervalued. It has applications as diverse as agriculture, mineral dressing, oil recovery, industrial chemistry, medical science and biotechnology.
A deductive approach is followed, with systems of growing complexity being treated as the book progresses. Volume I: Fundamentals (1st ed. 1991, 2nd ed. 1993) reviews the physical chemistry required to understand current literature on interfacial and colloid science. The volume starts from first principles and gradually increases the level. Volume II: Solid-Liquid Interfaces (1995) treats the subject systematically for the first time, including adsorption, double layers and electronkinetics. Volume III: Interface Tension covers interfacial tensions, monolayers and wetting.

  • Accessible to a wide audience without a detailed knowledge of physics and chemistry
  • Complex mathematical derivations are kept to a minimum
  • Treats interfacial and colloidal phenomena from first principles (advanced command of physics and chemistry not required)
  • Takes the reader from elementary to expert level
  • Acts as a reference and a textbook
  • Contains extensive and detailed cumulative subject index

In addition, a critical account is given of recent work on the adsorptive properties of activated carbons, oxides, clays and zeolites.

  • Provides a comprehensive treatment of adsorption at both the gas/solid interface and the liquid/solid interface
  • Includes chapters dealing with experimental methodology and the interpretation of adsorption data obtained with porous oxides, carbons and zeolites
  • Techniques capture the importance of heterogeneous catalysis, chemical engineering and the production of pigments, cements, agrochemicals, and pharmaceuticals


Semiconductor Surfaces and Interfaces (Springer Series in Surface Sciences)

Semiconductor Surfaces and Interfaces (Springer Series in Surface Sciences) Lowest new price: $55.46
Lowest used price: $1.60
List price: $59.95
Author: Winfried Mönch

Semiconductor Surfaces and Interfaces deals with structural and electronic properties of semiconductor surfaces and interfaces.
The first part introduces the general aspects of space-charge layers, of clean-surface and adatom-included surfaces states, and of interface states. It is followed by a presentation of experimental results on clean and adatom-covered surfaces which are explained in terms of simple physical and chemical concepts and models. Where available, results of more refined calculations are considered. A final chapter is devoted to the band lineup at semiconductor interfaces.


X-Ray Absorption: Principles, Applications, Techniques of EXAFS, SEXAFS and XANES

X-Ray Absorption: Principles, Applications, Techniques of EXAFS, SEXAFS and XANES Lowest new price: $351.91
Lowest used price: $242.44
List price: $473.00

Describes several specific spectrometric techniques that are very useful in elucidating the fundamental nature of matter: EXAFS--Extended X-Ray Absorption of Fine Structure; SEXAFS--which is EXAFS applied to Surface Phenomena; and XANES--X-Ray Absorption Near Edge Structures. Articles explain the phenomena and describe examples of X-ray absorption applications in several fields, including chemistry, biochemistry, catalysis, amorphous and liquid systems, synchrotron radiation, and surface phenomena. Contributors explain the underlying theory, how to set up X-ray absorption experiments, and how to analyze the details of the resulting spectra. This volume will be of particular interest to physicists, chemists, biologists, and materials scientists.


Dynamics of Fractal Surfaces

Dynamics of Fractal Surfaces Lowest new price: $158.00
Lowest used price: $145.99
List price: $160.00
Brand: Brand: World Scientific Pub Co Inc

In the last few years there has been an explosion of activity in the field of the dynamics of fractal surfaces, which, through the convergence of important new results from computer simulations, analytical theories and experiments, has led to significant advances in our understanding of nonequilibrium surface growth phenomena. This interest in surface growth phenomena has been motivated largely by the fact that a wide variety of natural and industrial processes lead to the formation of rough surfaces and interfaces. This book presents these developments in a single volume by bringing together the works containing the most important results in the field.The material is divided into chapters consisting of reprints related to a single major topic. Each chapter has a general introduction to a particular aspect of growing fractal surfaces. These introductory parts are included in order to provide a scientific background to the papers reproduced in the main part of the chapters. They are written in a pedagogical style and contain only the most essential information. The contents of the reprints are made more accessible to the reader as they are preceded by a short description of what the editors find to be the most significant results in the paper.

Surfaces (Oxford Chemistry Primers)

Surfaces (Oxford Chemistry Primers) Lowest new price: $24.99
Lowest used price: $11.21
List price: $35.00
Author: Gary Attard
Brand: Oxford University Press USA

This primer provides an introduction to the subject of surfaces at the level of undergraduates and first year postgraduates. There are four chapters, the first concerns basic thermodynamic material used to understand the properties of surfaces including; surface tension, Gibbs absorption, surface pressure and surface phase equilibria, surfactants and micelles, wetting, detergency, and contact angle. The second chapter concentrates on gas absorption at solid surfaces and covers topics including absorption, Langmuir isotherms, heats of absorption, BET isotherms, physisorbtion, chemisorbtion, precursor absorption kinetics, well-defined surfaces, UHV, surface sensitivity and selectivity, surface diffusion and electrons interacting with matter. Chapter three then outlines the physico-chemical principles of XPS, AES, LEED, STM, AFM, work function measurements, UPS, TPD, molecular beams, HREELS and PAIRS and the types of fundamental surface information each of these techniques provides. The final chapter contains a series of worked examples and problems, bringing together the various strands developed in Chapters 1-3 in order to elucidate surface phenomena. The book is unique in its mix of 'Classical' and 'Modern' surface science and should be relevant to physicists, chemists and material scientists.

On the Surface of Things: Images of the Extraordinary in Science

On the Surface of Things: Images of the Extraordinary in Science Lowest new price: $63.85
Lowest used price: $7.79
List price: $35.00
Author: Felice Frankel
Brand: Chronicle Books

A rare collaboration between artist and scientist, On the Surface of Things explores the hidden visual splendor of scientific phenomena, from cutting-edge nanotechnology to DNA sequencing. Photographer Felice Frankel, artist-in-residence at MIT, teamed up with George M. Whitesides, world-renowned Harvard University chemistry professor, to capture on film the chance explosions of beauty and color that occur when one surface meets another -- on both the micro- and macroscopic levels. How many electrons can dance on the head of a pin? What do DNA strands look like when chased by an electrical charge??

?Using innovative photographic technology, Frankel finds startling abstract beauty in the undulations of liquid crystal film, the gymnastics of plastic microstructures, the migratory trudge of bacteria, and other scientific wonders. Whitesides's accompanying text is lucid, engaging, and even poetic as he explains each photograph, describing why and how these phenomena occur. In the tradition of The Powers of Ten, On the Surface of Things will excite curious minds and intrigue anyone with an appreciation for photography or unique forms of natural beauty.
