The emergence of microwave-enhanced chemistry as an environmentally-friendly method of synthesis has been significant in recent years. While polymer technology forms one of the largest areas of application of microwave technology, and the mothods and procedures used therein are among the most developed, there is stilla relative lack of published information on the subject. Microwave-Enhanced Polymer Chemistry and Technology describes novel approaches to polymer processing using microwave technologies. Coverage includes background and scientific data, analysis of processes and product properties in comparison with existing technolgy, applications that are being used in various approaches, and the status of current reserach.
