Overview

An authoritative and in-depth review of the most important preparative methods for the synthesis and chemical modification of polymers, this second edition examines the advantages and limitations of a variety of polymerization applications and procedures, as well as new approaches and innovative strategies from the most prominent industry and academic laboratories. The authors analyze biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications, investigate the use of polyolefins, polymeric dienes, aromatic polyethers, polymides, and metal-containing macromolecules, and cover polymers of acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, and maleic acid, reflecting the burgeoning role of polymers in modern science and technology.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A compact but comprehensive review of the most important preparative methods for the synthesis and chemical modification of polymers. The contents of the two-volume handbook (Part A was cited in the May 1992 SciTech Book News) are subdivided according to the chemical structure of the polymer backbone on the one hand (Chapters 1-14 of Part A and 15-18 of Part B) and special properties and applications of polymers regardless of their chemical structure on the other hand (Chapters 19-27 of Part B). The latter chapters deal with, for instance, electroconductive polymers, polymeric reagents, and models of bio-polymers. Includes some 11,000 references to the original literature. Annotation c.
