Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
A balanced and concise coverage of inorganic polymers
Inorganic polymers contain elements other than carbon as part oftheir principal backbone structure and are known to exhibit a widerange of composition and structure. Emphasizing physicalproperties, chemical synthesis, and characterization of inorganicpolymers, Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers presents valuableand informative coverage of the field.
With numerous examples of real-world practical applications andend-of-chapter exercises, Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers issuitable for use as a text in special topics in organic and polymerchemistry courses. The book features useful sections on:
- Classification schemes for inorganic polymers
- Synthesis of inorganic polymers, including step-growthsyntheses, chain polymerizations, ring-opening polymerizations, andreductive coupling reactions
- Practical inorganic polymer chemistry topics such as polymerelastomers, dental and medical polymers, lubricants, lithographicresists, pre-ceramics, and more
Inorganic and Organometallic Polymers is avaluable one-volume introduction for professional and studentinorganic chemists, polymer chemists, and materials scientists.
