This beautiful compilation of invited review articles -- authored by well-known scientists -- covers the latest developments and achievements in colloid and interface science, and is dedicated to Professor Tharwat Tadros, an outstanding scientist in the field. Due to the fact that colloid science involves a great number of disciplines, the papers discuss such hot topics as emulsions, nano-particles, surfactants, micro-emulsions and self-assembly.
