Unlike generic plastics, specialty polymers are custom tailored for specific applications and are typically used in higher value products requiring improved performance. Interest in the field is growing steadily, and this book examines the recent advances in the synthesis, fundamental understanding and applications of specialty polymers. It is comprehensive in scope, covering and providing current information on topics ranging from the fundamentals to polymer synthesis and applications. Emphasis is placed on a nummber of materials issues including: developing a fundamental understanding of structure-property relationship that will lead to the rational design of polymers from specialty monomores, the synthesis of specialty monomers, and the elegant chemistry performed with these monomers to obtain polymers with unique properties.

Industry Reviews

"Based on talks presented at an ACS symposium, the 17 papers provide the state of the art in polymer synthesis, materials and synthesis. Topics include photoinitiated polymerization of a semifluorinated liquid crystalline monomer exhibiting a reduced rate in the smectic phase, single-molecular
assemblies of hydrophobically-modified polyelectrolytes, surface modification of silica particles and silica glass beads, and amine functional specialty polymers as adhesives in multilayer film composite structures."--SciTech Book News
