This glossary of terms, summaried by Adrian R. Rennie, is intended to provide a brief guide to the technical expressions used in the description of the properties of colloids, polymers and interfaces. By necessity, the account of each topic is brief. In some cases an equation is quoted or a quantity is defined mathematically but the description can not replace a full text book account of the subject.
The terms are arranged alphabetically but many links are provided within this Guide so that further clarification of the topic can be found. The explanation is at an introductory level. The experienced reader will have to excuse a few simplifications
