Colloid and surface engineeringCode de l'UE : HMCH109


The goal is to provide fundamentals in colloid and surface engineering.

Course content:
1. Intermolecular and surface forces and their consequences in term of surface interaction
2. Electro-kinetics phenomena (electrophoresis, electro-osmosis ...)
3. Colloidal properties (stability, coagulation, ...)
4. Practice of product formulation


- To know general concepts about surface forces and their consequences on colloids and nanoparticles properties
- To be able to estimate electro-kinetics phenomena
- To be able to estimate the stability of colloids
- To know the effect of the suspendant fluid on the properties of dispersed particles
- To know the practice of product formulation

Formation expérimentale :
Effect of different parameters on the stability of colloidal suspensions

Pré-requis recommandés

1st cycle degree or a bachelor degree in Chemistry, Physics, Materials Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Bio-chemical Engineering, or equivalent degrees in one of the previous domains.
