Eine gelungene Verknüpfung von Forschung und technischer Umsetzung: Diese neue Reihe zur Kolloid- und Grenzflächenforschung wird den Physikochemiker im Labor ebenso interessieren wie den Ingenieur in der Praxis! Sechs reich illustrierte Bände schlagen eine Brücke von der Grundlagenwissenschaft zu modernen industriellen Anwendungen. Das international renommierte Autorenteam nähert sich dem Thema aus interdisziplinärer Perspektive. -- Der jetzt vorliegende fünfte Band konzentriert sich auf die Rolle von Kolloiden in der Agrochemie. Besonders deutlich wird dabei die Bedeutung der Grundlagenforschung für die Anwendungsentwicklung.

About the editor:

"Dr. Tadros is a very well recognized individual in the surface chemistry community and is known to write well."
(Prof. Krister Holmberg, Chalmers University, Göteborg, Sweden)

"The author is a well-known scientist in this field with a long experience in colloid science."
(Henkel KGaA, Düsseldorf, Germany)

"Dr. Tadros is well-known in the field of colloid science. High quality can be expected."
(University of Bayreuth, Germany)

"Professor Tadros is a well-known expert on the topic. Because of his industrial experience it might be possible to close the gap between fundamentals and the relevance and applications in the practice."
(Dr. Oetter, BASF AG, Ludwigshafen, Germany)

"Dr. Tadros is a well-known scientist in emulsion and rheology science who can write about fundamentals and applications of surfactants."
(Yokohama National University, Japan)
After finishing his PhD at Alexandria University, Tharwat Tadros was appointed lecturer in Physical Chemistry (1962-1966) at the same University. Between 1966 and 1969, he spent a sabbatical at the Agricultural University of Wageningen and T.N.O in Delft, the Netherlands. Thereafter he worked at I.C.I. and ZENECA until 1994, where he researched various fields of surfactants, emulsions, suspensions, microemulsions, wetting spreading and adhesion, and rheology. During that period he was also appointed visiting professor at Imperial College London, Bristol University and Reading University. In 1992, he was elected President of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Science. Since leaving ZENECA, Dr Tadros has worked as a consultant for various industries and also given several courses in his specialized field. He is the recipient of two medals from the Royal Society of Chemistry in the UK, and has more than 250 scientific papers to his name.
