Prerequisite: CHE304

Prerequisites: Molecules and Ions at Interfaces (SBC702). For F152 students only. This module will cover various advanced concepts of colloidal systems and their application. An overview of the concepts involved such as surface tension and surfactants, monolayers such as lipids will be given. We shall investigate the application of colloids and their structures and characterisation. Techniques such as light scattering, small angle X-ray and neutron scattering as well as rheology of these systems will be covered. Various examples of in pharmaceuticals and natural products design will be discussed.
