Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science: Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science Liquid-fluid Interfaces v. 3 : Liquid-Fluid Interfaces
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.

"Lyklema is a teachers' teacher who has done an outstanding service to the profession through this volume. I recommend the volume very strongly to anyone interested in colloid and interface science."
--Raj Rajagopalan, PARTICLES NEWSLETTER
"Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science" as a whole is a tremendous work, which in a consistent way covers the entire field. The five volume set of Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science is a work that ought to be at hand at every institution that carries out surface chemistry research. It is important also in these days, when information is so easily obtained through the internet, to have the fundamentals and principles complied in a consistent way by someone skilled in the art. And the author (and editor) of Fundamentals of Interface and Colloid Science is well suited for the task. He has been in the midst of the development of the science for half a century, he has either been engaged in or has closely followed the research in the various sub-areas, and he has acquired a broad scientific network, a range of colleagues from which the co-authors of Volumes IV and V were selected."
