This book deals with the formulation of industrial products. Its field of application ranges from the food-processing industry to the elastomer industry, showing that the principles of development always follow the same methodology.

It is intended to assist engineers and scientists in the development of efficient formulations during the early stages of the product development process, providing a comprehensive review of mechanisms in formulation development and relevant analytical methods for more specially dispersed systems.

In addition, some practical approaches are illustrated by specialists in various domains: pharmaceutical, food, elastomers, etc.
