Colloids and colloidal systems play a significant role in human health as well as commercial and industrial situations. Colloids have important applications in medicine, sewage disposal, water purification, mining, photography, electroplating, agriculture, and more.This book gathers recent research from experts in the field of colloids and discusses several aspects of colloid morphology, synthesis, and applications. The book is divided into three sections that cover different techniques for the synthesis of colloids, the structure, dynamic and stability of colloids, and applications of colloidal particles, respectively.
