Author(s): ectrical Phenomena at Interfaces and Biointerfaces: Fundamentals and Applications in Nano-, Bio-, an
This book is based on a joint project of the Center for Colloid and Interface Science, Research Institute for Science and Technology, Tokyo University of Science, and the Electrokinetic Society of Japan. Kunio Furusawa and Hiroyuki Ohshima edited Electrical Phenomena at Interfaces (1990 2nd Edition, 1998) although this book has a similar title, it is on completely different concepts. This book is written for scientists, engineers, and graduate students who want to study theoretical and experimental aspects of electrical phenomena at interfaces and biointerfaces. The principal purpose of this book is to bridge three different fields: nano-, bio-, and environmental sciences. As a basis of these three different fields, the understanding of electrical phenomena at interfaces and biointerfaces is becoming more and more important. This book is divided into three parts. Part I contains the fundamentals of electrical phenomena at interfaces and biointerfaces. Parts II and III treat many topics in this field, including applications in nano- and environmental sciences (Part II) and applications in biosciences (Part III).
