There is considerable interest within the polymer industry in developing methods to modify existing polymer systems to achieve improvements in their functional or engineering properties. The chemical treatment of polymers, either prior to or during processing, represents an inexpensive and rapid way of achieving these modifications, and a great deal of research is underway, directed at improving both the understanding of the processes involved and the development of the practical techniques employed. The improvements obtained by chemical treatment range from subtle alteration of the chemical properties of a polymer to wholesale changes in the physical, mechanical and chemical properties, with the current favourable economics ensuring that industry will continue to exploit the technique in the search for improved polymer materials. Written by an international team of authors, drawn from both basic and applied research programmes in industry and academia, and with a strong emphasis on the underlying chemistry, this book forms a timely, concise and accessible evaluation of the most promising technologies developed to date. Chemists, technologists, materials' scientists and engineers working in all areas of the polymer industry, along with academic researchers in those fields, will find this book an essential source of reference in the course of their work.

This book offers concise information on the properties of polymeric materials, particularly those most relevant to physical chemistry and chemical physics. Extensive updates and revisions to each chapter include eleven new chapters on novel polymeric structures, reinforcing phases in polymers, and experiments on single polymer chains. The study of complex materials is highly interdisciplinary, and new findings are scattered among a large selection of scientific and engineering journals. This book brings together data from experts in the different disciplines contributing to the rapidly growing area of polymers and complex materials.

Annotation The review focuses on the use of pharmaceutical polymer for controlled drug delivery applications. Examples of pharmaceutical polymers and the principles of controlled drug delivery are outlined and applications of polymers for controlled drug delivery are described. The field of controlled drug delivery is vast therefore this review aims to provide an overview of the applications of pharmaceutical polymers. The review is accompanied by approximately 250 abstracts taken from papers and books in the Rapra Polymer Library database, to facilitate further reading on this subject.

For last five years polymers have revolutionised all spheres of human endeavour and, therefore, have been the focus of intense investigation by academic and industrial researchers. One of the most important problems in polymer applications is a comprehension of water transport phenomena attending to production, exploitation, and storage of polymer materials or articles. Conceptually this collection is partitioned into three, thematically bonded sections including academic aspects, experimental procedures, and practical application aspects including such intriguing subjects as exposure of polymer composites to earth orbit space environments. Advancement in the understanding of specific behaviour of water in polymers with different hydrophilicity and morphology has to open the way to design the novel constructional and biomedical materials as well as ecologically friendly packaging films and selective membranes. Contents: Preface; Impact of Structure and Morphology upon Water Transport in Polymers with Moderate Hydrophilicity. From Traditional to Novel Environmentally Friendly Polymers; Modeling of Anomalous Diffusion with Fitter Software; Mutual Diffusion of Poly(N-Vinyl Pyrrolidone

As environmental performance becomes increasingly important, the development of man-made polymers and their associated benefits has been overshadowed by problems relating to their ultimate disposal. In the light of wider acceptance of polymers for use in high technology applications, Polymers and the Environment aims to redress the balance. The book reviews the properties and industrial applications of polymers and discusses their environmental benefits compared with traditional materials. It also addresses the issues of polymer durability, recycling processes to aid waste minimization and biodegradable polymers. This text is intended to introduce the non-specialist reader to the benefits and limitations of polymeric materials from an environmental viewpoint, and will prove a useful book for both students and professionals.

This text provides a comprehensive overview of the physical characteristics of polymers from random polymer chains and the statistical concepts of a gaussian chain to crystalline polymers and their kinetics. The main part of the book is concerned with the different physical states and phenomena which are characteristic of polymers. A summary of the most important experimental methods in polymer physics is included. Each chapter provides the reader with problems, for which solutions are given at the end of the book.
