Learn how to solve your colloidal, foam, and dispersion problems in two days.
Help solve your colloidal, foam, and dispersion problems in this course designed for scientists and engineers engaged in research and development in the chemical, petroleum, coatings, food, electronics, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, and ceramics industries.
Consult with a seasoned expert about your R&D problems. Topics covered will include surface and interfaces, surfactants, nanoparticle technology, interparticle forces and stability, laboratory techniques, emulsion technology, dispersion processing, foam technology, and polymer stabilization.
Registrants are encouraged to purchase a copy of the book Colloidal Dispersions: Suspensions, Emulsions, and Foams by Ian Morrison and Sydney Ross in addition to their registration as part of this course.
