Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

"Modified Fibers with Medical and Specialty Applications is comprised of fourteen chapters, each of each is a valuable gem in its own right. … it is an inviting introduction to the importance of modified fibers. The book is a useful tool for students and researchers … . The book is also well worth the attention of many more than this audience. … a significant service for those establishing workshops introducing current concepts in fibers, for textile undergraduate courses, as well as for professional seminars." (Current Engineering Practice, 2007)
