Surface chemistry and colloid chemistry are important in a large number of areas from
food and pharmaceutical industries to metal-oxide preparation for fuel-cell applications
and high temperature superconductivity. Each chapter in this book is authored by an expert
in a relevant branch of surface or colloid chemistry. The scope of the book includes interfacial
film structures for this film formation and emulsion formation, contact angle and adsorption
studies to characterise solid surfaces and the impact of scanning tunneling microscope and
atomic force microscope on surface science.

Chapter1: Introduction to Surface and Colloidal Chemistry ( By K S Birdi:):
This is a brief introductory chapter of just 3 pages, the notable items include
a table listing typical colloidal systems such as aerosols, forms, emulsions etc.
and a bibliography of 17 references.

Chapter 2 : Hydrogen Bonding in Solutions: The equations-of-State-Approach -(by C Panayiotou):
The chapter begins with an introduction to intermolecular hydrogen bonding and follows with
statistical mechanical treatment of hydrogen bonding in aqueous solutions. Adsorption isotherms
and surface tension data are given for model systems of various alcohols in water. Solubility
parameters are also given for various van-der Waals fluids. Rubber swelling, gels and hydro-gels
are then discussed. Intra molecular hydrogen-bonding is then discussed with with some-emphasis
on alkoxy alcohols. Hydrogen bonding cooperativity (systems having doner and acceptor hydrogen bonds)
are then discussed. ( This mechanism is also know as the Grottus mechanism and responsible for
the high conductivity of hydrated protons. ) Here a rigorous statistical mechanical treatment is given.
Vapour pressure vs temperature relationship is calculated for water and compared with experimental values.
The chapter ends with a bibliography of 64 reference, Appendix 2a (The equation of state framework,
the quasi-chemical-lattice framework, and a bibliography of 20 references for the appendices),

surface tension of oil-water systems. The chapter ends with a bibliography of 99 references.

Chapter 4: Surface Waves and Dissipative Solitons sustained by the Maragoni effect -(by M Vignes-Adler and M Verlade):

This chapter provides an introduction the the maragoni effect, it then describes nonlinear wave
properties and the maragoni effect. The remainder of the chapter described experimental
