Classes (iCal) - next class is marked with N
Seminarraum 2 Währinger Straße 38 Dekanat 1. Stock
Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
- significant forces between colloidal particles, how they can be calculated in approximation and exactly and how they can be measured
- how to form emulsions and foams and the physical properties required for stable foams and emulsions to form
- how to manipulate the wettability of surfaces
- why surfactants are active at interfaces and be able to choose which type/class of surfactant would be best to use in certain situations, specifically which would be good to form emulsions, as dispersants and good wetting agents, which would be good to destabilise emulsions
- why rheological properties are important in many applications and how to alter them
