Interfacial Forces in Aqueous Media

Front Cover
CRC Press, May 22, 2006 - Science - 456 pages
Thoroughly revised and reorganized, the second edition of Interfacial Forces in Aqueous Media examines the role of polar interfacial and noncovalent interactions among biological and nonbiological macromolecules as well as biopolymers, particles, surfaces, cells, and both polar and apolar polymers. The book encompasses Lifshitz-van de
