Dr. Tharwat Tadros was formerly a senior research associate at ICI/ZENECA (Jealott's Hill, Brackness, UK) where he was a leader of a research group specialized in Colloid and Interface Science. He was a visiting Professor at Imperial College, Bristol University and Reading University. At present he is an independent consultant for various Multi-National Companies and gives lectures on various topics all over the world. Dr. Tadros has published over 250 papers in the field of concentrated dispersions, rheology, emulsions, nanoemulsions and microemulsions. In particular, Dr. Tadros carried out a great deal of research on polymeric surfactants and their stabilization mechanisms. He also carried out research work on wetting spreading and adhesion. Dr. Tadros has written five books on Surfactants in Agrochemicals (1994) and on Applied Surfactants (2005), Colloids in Agrochemicals (2009), Colloids in Paints (to be published 2010), Rheology of Dispersions (to be published 2010). He has edited several books on Surfactants (1984), Solid/Liquid Dispersion (1987). More recently he edited a series of six volumes on Colloids and Interface Sciences Series . He also is editing another series on Topics on Colloid and Interface Science . Dr. Tadros was the Editor-in-Chief of Colloids and Surfaces as well as Advanced Colloid and Interface Science . He is still an Honorary Editor of both journals. He was the past president of the International Association of Colloid and Interface Science (IACIS).
