Abstract [en]

INTRODUCTION; The Institute for Surface Chemistry - YKI - celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The Institute, located in Stockholm, Sweden, has played an active part in the development of surface chemistry for various technological applications. The development in this field has been rapid. In the end of the 60's, surface chemistry was a relatively unknown discipline both in academia and in industry; today it is seen as one of the most dynamic areas in chemistry and as a technology of vital importance in industrial branches ranging from pharmaceuticals to paper making. Already in 1962 a laboratory for surface chemistry was founded in Stockholm. The laboratory, headed by Professor Per Ekwall from Finland, grew in size. In 1968, it got the status of an institute. Stig Friberg became the first Director and held the position until 1977. During this period, YKI industrial support was established through the Foundation for Surface Chemistry with members from all Scandinavian countries. The research heritage from Per Ekwall proved fruitful both from a scientific and an applied point of view with active industrial interaction through technical sections in a number of branches. During these years the Institute acquired a solid international reputation. Friberg was succeeded by Ekwall's former student Per Stenius who stayed as Director until 1991. During these years YKI strengthened its positions in several important fields of applied surface chemistry, such as paper making, mineral ore flotation and surface and colloid chemistry related to coatings. An important step on the more fundamental side was the establishment of a research group in the field of surface force measurements. Research in this area has been rewarding and the activity has expanded. The Stockholm group which through the years has maintained close contact with the Canberra group is one of the leading in this field today. YKI today is an institute with a large scientific network all over the world. Active collaboration is maintained with research groups in many countries and the Institute receives a large number of guest scientists each year. What started as a Swedish Institute developing into a Scandinavian organization has now become a truly international operation. Each year YKI arranges an international symposium on applied surface chemistry. This special issue of the lournal of Dispersion Science and Technology contains contributions by invited speakers of this year's meeting, held in Copenhagen, Denmark, in November 1993 and hosted by Novo Nordisk A/S.
