Guides readers from principlesto methodologies to applications
ollowing this book′s step–by–step explanations, readers discover how to take advantage of polymer grafting and crosslinking to modify polymer materials in order to make them suitable for specific applications. Moreover, the authors demonstrate how this can be achieved economically and without the need for developing brand–new materials.
Polymer Grafting and Crosslinking features a team of expert editors and authors. Their contributions are based on their own firsthand experience developing enhanced materials as well as a thorough investigation and analysis of the literature.
This book starts by giving readers a solid foundation in the basic science and methodologies of polymer grafting and crosslinking. It then moves on to examine a variety of important and developing industrial applications, including:
Separation and purification
Coatings, adhesives, and laminates
Readers also learn how to take advantage of analytical tools designed to evaluate materials after they′ve been grafted or crosslinked. References serve as a gateway to the primary literature, facilitating further research.
While much information has been published in the area of polymer grafting and crosslinking, it has been spread across a broad range of journals and references. This single volume brings together in one place the core science, methodologies, and applications, making it an ideal practical manual for polymer chemists, surface chemists and physicists, and membrane scientists.
