Developments in Surface Contamination and Cleaning: Types of Contamination and Contamination Resources

Book Description

Developments in Surface Contamination and Cleaning, Volume Ten, provides a state-of-the-art guide to the current knowledge on the behavior of film-type and particulate surface contaminants and their cleaning methods. This newest volume in the series discusses mechanisms of particle adhesion, particle behavior in liquid systems, and metallic contamination and its impact.

In addition, the book includes a discussion of the types of contaminants, with resources to deal with them and information on environmental issues related to surface contamination and cleaning. Taken as a whole, the series forms a unique reference for professionals and academics working in the area of surface contamination and cleaning that also includes information on cleaning at the micro and nano scales.

  • Written by established experts in the contamination field that provide an authoritative resource
  • Presents a comprehensive review of new trends in contaminants and resources for dealing with those contaminants
  • Contains detailed case studies to illustrate various scenarios
