Series: Adhesion and Adhesives: Fundamental and Applied Aspects

Series Editor: K.L. Mittal

Scope: The topics to be covered include, but not limited to, basic and theoretical aspects of adhesion; modeling of adhesion phenomena; mechanisms of adhesion; surface and interfacial analysis and characterization; unraveling of events at interfaces; characterization of interphases; adhesion of thin films and coatings; adhesion aspects in reinforced composites; formation, characterization and durability of adhesive joints; surface preparation methods; polymer surface modification; biological adhesion; particle adhesion; adhesion of metallized plastics; adhesion of diamond-like films; adhesion promoters; contact angle, wettability· and adhesion; superhydrophobicity and superhydrophilicity. With regards to adhesives, the Series will include, but not limited, to green adhesives; novel and high-performance adhesives; and medical adhesive applications.

About the Series Editor:
Kashmiri Lal Mittal was associated with the IBM Corporation from 1972 through 1993. Currently, he is teaching and consulting worldwide in the broad areas of adhesion as well as surface cleaning. He has initiated, organized and chaired a large number of international symposia, and is the editor of more than 105 volumes dealing with adhesion measurement, adhesion of polymeric coatings, polymer surfaces, adhesive joints, adhesion promoters, thin films, polyimides, surface modification, surface cleaning, and surfactants.

He has received many awards and honors, is a Robert L. Patrick Fellow of the Adhesion Society and is listed in many biographical reference works. He co-founded the Journal of Adhesion Science and Technology of which he was the Editor-in-Chief until April 2012. Dr. Mittal was recognized for his contributions and accomplishments by the worldwide adhesion community by organizing in his honor to mark his 50th birthday the 1st International Congress on Adhesion Science & Technology in Amsterdam in 1995. In 2002, he was honored by the global surfactant community by inaugurating the Kash Mittal Award in his honor for his significant contribution to the field of colloid and interface chemistry. In 2003 he was honored by the Maria Curie-Skłodowska University, Lublin, Poland by awarding him the title of doctor honoris causa. In 2006 he was recognized by dedicating Volumes 123-126 of Advances in Colloid and Interface Science in his honor on the occasion of his 60th birthday. In 2010 he was recognized for the publication of his 100 edited books by two symposia held in his honor: Recent Advances in Adhesion Science and Technology, held at the American Chemical Society meeting in Boston, August 2010; and Surfactant Science and Technology: Retrospects and Prospects, held in Melbourne, Australia, November 2010.

Submission to the series:
The Series is open to Handbooks, authored books, edited volumes, textbooks, as well as the occasional single chapter.
