Colloidal Science of Flotation
by Anh V. Nguyen & Hans Joachim Schulze

Book | Print Published: 12/17/2003
Hard Cover
840 pages | Illustrated
Print ISBN: 0-8247-4782-8

Description

Elucidates the dynamics of particles and bubbles in flotation, particle–bubble encounter interaction, and particle–bubble attachment interaction. Discusses the stability of particle–bubble aggregates in view of force and energy analysis. Features whole sections on flotation froth, flotation kinetics, and industrial applications such as wastewater treatment.
