Available courses

This course will introduce students to surface and colloid science concepts such as surface tension, wetting, adsorption, capillarity, and the formation and stability of sols, emulsions, and foams. Also discussed will be the water solubility and partition coefficients of organic species and introductions to the properties of both surfactants and water soluble polymers. The focus will be on applications with particularly interest on aqueous processes and mechanisms. The course content is extremely interdisciplinary and expected to be of interest to both undergraduate and graduate students from a variety of fields including chemistry, chemical engineering, materials sciences, water resources sciences, pulp and paper, agriculture, environmental sciences, pharmacy, and food science.
