This second volume of the unique interdisciplinary "Soft Matter" series comprehensively describes colloids and their properties.
The structural and thermodynamic properties of mixtures of rod–like and spherical colloids and of mixtures colloids and polymers, as well as the dynamical behavior of rod–like colloids are treated in depth. Again leading scientists have contributed articles that both introduce readers to this field, and serve as a source of reference for experts.
"...a unique series, holding great promise, strongly emphasizing the current state of the art in this field, as well as looking towards the future, and by doing so, inspiring new generations of scientists. Overall, this is an excellent and most useful initiative, which can be highly recommended to the research community and to advanced graduate students primarily in physics. However, physical and colloidal chemists and materials scientists will also benefit from this work."
