The Colloidal Materials and Interfaces section publishes new fundamental concepts and topical applications at the forefront of colloid and interface science. This interdisciplinary forum highlights contributions concerned with the synthesis, assembly, properties and functions of colloidal materials and the processes of various interfaces. Emphasis is given to novel experimental techniques and theoretical/computational methods for advanced studies of interfacial interactions and the design of colloidal materials, including:
• Colloidal solutions, self-assembly, surfactant and polymer mesophases
• Colloidal soft matter, membranes, coatings, films, gels, and foams
• Colloidal nanostructures, micro-mesoporous materials and core-shell structures
• Interfacial processes, adsorption, capillarity, wetting, and microfluidics
• Biointerfaces, biocolloids, biofilms, and biomembranes
Particular consideration will be given to conceptually novel applications of colloid and interface science in areas such as energy, environmental technologies, catalysis, medicine, food, pharmaceutical and personal care. Studies which only make routine use of, or minor extensions to well established methodologies (e.g. fitting adsorption data to common isotherm models) are not appropriate for this section.

Colloidal Materials and Interfaces welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Editorial, Mini Review, Original Research, Perspective and Review.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Colloidal Materials and Interfaces, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Colloidal Materials and Interfaces will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Materials.
