Colloid and Interface Science Communications is a primary research journal that provides the colloids community an efficient and flexible route for the publication of scientifically and ethically sound articles which may not always find the right home on first submission.

The journal is a forum for the rapid publication of short initial reports, full research papers and review articles on new fundamental concepts, research findings, and topical applications at the forefront of the increasingly interdisciplinary area of colloid and interface science. Emphasis is given to novel experimental techniques and theoretical/computational methods for advanced studies of interfacial interactions and design of colloidal materials, including

• Colloidal solutions, self-assembly, surfactant and polymer mesophases
• Interfacial processes, adsorption, capillarity, wetting, and microfluidics
• Soft matter, membranes, coatings, films, gels, and foams
• Nanoparticles, nanotubes, and low dimensionality materials
• Colloidal nanostructures and micro-mesoporous materials
• Biointerfaces, biocolloids, biofilms, and biomembranes

The scope of applications include nanomaterials, energy production and storage, biotechnologies, nanomedicine, drug delivery, environmental sustainability, adsorption separations, catalysis, electrochemistry, food, pharmaceutical, personal care, and cosmetic products.
