Colloid Chemistry of Papermaking Materials.
Edited by Gerard J.F. Ring; Written by John Swanson
Provides an in-depth study of the aspects of colloid chemistry that are important to papermaking. It covers surface chemistry, colloidal chemistry, sorption phenomena, electrokinetic properties, flocculation, internal sizing agents, polymeric additives, and pitch and foam control agents. The text features many paper-specific examples, a variety of diagrams and illustrations, and extensive references.
The text is based on lecture notes and handouts prepared by John Swanson for graduate-level courses taught at the Institute of Paper Chemistry in Appleton, WI in the 1960s and 1970s. At that time and until now, there was not a textbook covering the specialized area of colloid chemistry of papermaking. This will be a valuable reference for chemists, chemical engineers, product developers, professors, scientists and technologist working in the paper industry since it cites many of the key research articles in the field of wet end chemistry. 2002. 278 pages, soft cover.
