This volume spans the field of polymer colloids. Many types of latexes are discussed, including: homopolymers, copolymers, and natural polymers, those made with reactive surfactants and polymeric stabilizers, surface-modified, hybrids and blends. A variety of polymerization processes are described varying from batch to semicontinuous, free radical, and controlled free radical. Dispersion and suspensions are also presented.

Industry Reviews

"Papers from the Polymer Colloids Symposium held at Lehigh University, June 2000, as part of the 74th Colloid and Surface Science Symposium, examine research and industrial applications in homopolymers, copolymers, and natural polymers, latexes made with reactive surfactants and polymeric stabilizers, and those that are surface modified, hybrids, and blends. Processes covered vary from batch to semicontinuous, free radical, controlled free radical, dispersion, and suspension. Kinetics, on-line monitoring, and control are discussed as well. Specific topics include new core-shell dispersions with reactive groups, temperature-sensitive hairy particles, dispersed condensation polymerization in supercritical fluids, and avoidance of secondary particle formation. Daniels is affiliated with Lehigh University."--SciTech Book News
