Review quote

"The electrical properties of polymer-clay nanocomposites, carbon nanotubes, and inorganic-organic hybrid materials are just now being studied . The chapters in this book provide a good introduction to each of those areas, including synthesis, properties, processing, and applications. [A] helpful addition to the library of anyone working on new polymeric materials." - IEEE Electrical Insulation, Vol. 20, No. 5, Sept/Oct 2004show more

Table of contents

This book addresses the issues, characterization, durability, processing, and properties of state-of-the-art polymers. In chapters contributed by international experts-all in the vanguard of their respective specialties-it explores four areas now undergoing explosive growth: fiber reinforced composites, nanocomposites, polymer blends, and bioengineering. Discussions include a variety of applications, design considerations, enhancement of physical and mechanical properties, and processing and manufacturing. This welcome narrative treatment offers a unique, one-stop opportunity to discover the latest research on polymer modification from laboratories around the more
