Environmental Colloids and Particles: Behaviour, Separation
on Analytical and Physical Chemistry
of Environmental Systems - Vol. 10
Kevin Wilkinson and Jamie Lead (Editors)
John Wiley & Sons, 2007
This text presents the current knowledge of environmental colloids
and includes reviews of the current understanding of structure, role
and behaviour of environmental colloids and particles, whilst focussing
directly on aquatic systems and soils. In addition, there is substantial
critical assessment of the techniques employed for the sampling, size
fractionation and characterisation of colloids and particles. Chemical,
physical and biological processes and interactions involving colloids
are described, and particular attention is paid to quantitative approaches
that take account of particle heterogeneity and polydispersity.
- Presents critical reviews of the state-of-the-art knowledge of
- Critical assessment of techniques employed for the sampling, size
fractionation and characterisation of colloids and particles are given
- Theoretical and experimental aspects of the methods as well as the
required developments and possible recommendations are discussed
- Each chapter gives a brief introduction general enough for the non-specialist
- Written by a internationally recognized group of contributors
The IUPAC Series on Analytical and Physical Chemistry of Environmental
Systems provides a critical evaluation of the state-of-the-art on
physicochemical properties and processes in environmental systems,
as well as on the analytical techniques required to study and monitor
them. The series is aimed at promoting rigorous analysis and understanding
of physicochemical functioning of environmental and bioenvironmental
