Interfacial Science: An Introduction – Geoffrey Barnes, Ian Gentle – Google Books

Interfacial science impacts on our lives in diverse and surprising ways. Without it, we would face bubble bath without the bubbles, detergents which don’t clean, cappuccinos without the froth.

It has also fuelled some of the most ground-breaking and throught-provoking advances in research in recent times, from biosciences to nanotechnology. Introduction to Interfacial Science offers an engaging insight into the study of the physical and chemical properties of interfaces, how they behave, why they behave as they do, and how this behavior can be harnessed and exploited in novel and exciting ways.

An Introduction is an accessible text introducing readers to the chemistry of interfaces, a subject of increasing relevance and popularity due to the emergence of nanoscience. With the careful explanation of essential mathematical and physical concepts, and description of real world applications of the material presented, the book helps the student to build confidence in, and see the relevance of, the topics covered. Striking a careful balance between the highly mathematical treatments of the subject by more specialist texts, and the rudimentary treatment offered by general physical chemistry texts, Interfacial Science: An Introduction offers a breadth and depth of treatment which is perfect for any advanced undergraduate course on this exciting, dynamic barnse.

He returned to Australia in to take up a position as Lecturer in Physical Chemistry at The University of Queensland and retired as Reader in For most of this period he worked in Surface Chemistry with a special interest in insoluble monolayers.

Since retirement he has worked with Ian Gentle on various research projects and more recently in the writing of Interfacial Science: Ian Gentle received a Ph.

He was promoted to Professor in Since then he and his group have published widely in various aspects of science related to interfaces. Throughout his career he has had a strong interest in the application of synchrotron and neutron radiation to interfacial science and since late has held the position of Head of Science at the Australian Synchrotron, while maintaining his research group at the University of Queensland.

Why should you use Wordery

Widespread use of examples of topical research, and exercises highlighting applications in the real world, demonstrates the importance of the subject in industrial research and development, and conveys a sense of excitement in this field. An Online Resource Centre includes protocols for laboratory experiments. The structure of the book has been rationalized to build upon the accessible style of the intertacial edition. Chapters have been expanded to provide greater depth, as well as breadth, to interfacil.

Boxes, exercise, and worked examples have been included to allow more advanced study. Protocols for laboratory experiments are provided online as downloadable Word documents, to allow lecturers to adapt and use in their own setups.
