The study of aggregation of colloidal particles involves assessment of the thermodynamics and kinetics of the process and the characteristics of the phase formed. In this article, recent contributions to the understanding of aggregation are discussed from two different perspectives: (1) developments following the classical treatment and (2) new molecular approaches.
