Colloids have come a long way from when Thomas Graham coined the term colloid to describe pseudo solutions. This book enables scientists to close the gap between extensive r esearch and translation into commercial options in biomedicine and biotechnology. It covers biosurfactants and surface properties, phase behavior, and orientational change of surfactant mixtures with peptides at the interface. It also covers adsorption of polymers and biopolymers on the surface and interface, discusses colloidal nanoparticles and their use in biotechnology, and delves into bioadhesion and microencapsulation. A final section deals with nanofibre formation and the use of sol-gel in biotechnological applications.
