Key topics
• Principles that are relevant to the formation and stability of dispersions of fine particles (suspension), dispersions of liquids (emulsions), and dispersions of gas (foams)
• Fundamental concepts and laboratory techniques to characterize the behavior of fine particles and the chemical and physical properties of interfaces.
• Experimental methods to measure particle size, dispersion stability, rheological, and electrokinetic properties.
• Factors that determine dispersibility and stability to flocculation and sedimentation.
• Methods to stabilize or destabilize fine dispersions in both aqueous and nonaqueous liquids.
• Dispersion processing, including commercial equipment.
