Polymers and Copolymers obtained by ring–opening polymerization comprise a large portion of the engineering plastics industry and are used for preparation of many specialty materials, such as Nylon 6 and poly(propylene oxide).

Written by internationally acclaimed experts in their respective fields, this comprehensive, one–stop reference discusses cyclic monomers, polymerization methods, stereochemistry, industrial applications and more. All the main classes of monomers are discussed separately, together with their specifities regarding the ring–opening polymerization techniques, the mechanisms, the degree of control, the properties of the related polymers and their applications.
