Special Issue Information Colloid chemistry, an important branch of physical chemistry, mainly involves research on colloid-scale dispersion systems and other relevant functional applications. Research topics include the properties and patterns of dispersion systems formed by surfactant, macromolecules, and colloidal particles as well as assembly systems associated with interface phenomena. These topics are closely related to various fields such as materials, energy, environment, biology, and medicine. With the advances in technology, scientists are now capable of utilizing novel interfacial assembly methods to perform precise control of colloidal material structures at the nanometer scale, thereby elucidating the mechanisms of interfacial assembly and creating new functions and applications of colloidal materials.
The focus of this special issue is the recent progress in colloid chemistry research, including synthetic methods of green surfactants, novel uses of Pickering emulsions, novel methods for structure determination, dynamic properties, and weak interactions of colloidal systems, and controlled interfacial assembly of polymeric nanomaterials.
Submission Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.whxb.pku.edu.cn/journalx_wlhx_en/authorLogOn.action. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline.
