Interfacial Forces in Aqueous Media

Front Cover
CRC Press, May 2, 1994 - Science - 452 pages
"This practical monograph treats, for the first time, the interfacial forces among biopolymers, particles and surfaces, and cells and other polar and apolar polymers encompassing Lifshitz-van der Waals and electrostatic interactions as well as hydrogen-bonding interactions between colloidal entities in polar media, especially water."
