9780444632838-colloidal-systemsThis is an edited book with contributions from 58 distinguished scientists across the world. The editor of the book is a well-known researcher with the Colloids and Surfaces Research Centre at the Al-Quds University, East Jerusalem, Palestine,   As the table of contents indicates, the book underlines the importance of colloids in many applications that contribute to environmental protection, including drinking water and wastewater treatment, treatment of contaminated soils, abatement of pesticides in food products, heavy metal remediation, treatment of radioactive materials, corrosion, and energy conversion. Knowledge of the physical and chemical composition of colloids is important to understand and accurately model the relevant processes.

The book discusses at length the application of colloids in environmental protection including the use of nanoparticles in environmental protection. The book provides chemical engineers, researchers, and scientists in academic and corporate world an overview of the latest developments in this field, starting from the theoretical fundamentals to several applications.
