The Rise and Decline of Colloid Science in North America, 1900-1935: The Neglected Dimension
Offering a comprehensive account of the early history of colloid chemistry, Dr. Ede also looks at the complex issues that led to the rise and sudden decline of the status of colloid research, to a point where the term 'colloid science' became one to be avoided by young scientists who wished to be considered serious researchers. The book prompts interesting questions about why the prestige of different branches of science rises and falls, the practice of scientific research in early twentieth-century America, and the future of chemistry as a scientific field.
