A thorough, up-to-date examination of the science and practical application of superabsorbent polymers.<br> <br> Modern Superabsorbent Polymer Technology takes a comprehensive look at the structure, properties, and uses of superabsorbent polymers. Prepared by editors with over 20 years of experience in the field, it offers a unified approach to polymer science technologies and examines the key interrelationships between structure, properties, behavior, and applications.<br> <br> This book draws on the best and most relevant scientific papers from academia and industry, as well as numerous patents and patent applications. The result is a compact, centralized source of information on superabsorbent polymers that no polymer or chemical engineer will want to be without.<br> <br> Discusses synthetic chemistry and the effects of synthesis on the structure of superabsorbent polymers<br> * Describes and compares industrial practices of the major manufacturers of superabsorbent polymers<br> * Features analytical methods for evaluation of the properties and behavior of superabsorbent polymers<br> * Explores structural and property relationships of crosslinked super-absorbent polymers<br> * Surveys new superabsorbent polymer forms and types-including fibers, foams, and biodegradable superabsorbents<br> * Covers current and emerging applications in personal care products, horticulture, construction, and other areas.
