An authoritative and in-depth review of the most important preparative methods for the synthesis and chemical modification of polymers, this second edition examines the advantages and limitations of a variety of polymerization applications and procedures, as well as new approaches and innovative strategies from the most prominent industry and academic laboratories. The authors analyze biodegradable polymers for biomedical applications, investigate the use of polyolefins, polymeric dienes, aromatic polyethers, polymides, and metal-containing macromolecules, and cover polymers of acrylic acid, methacrylic acid, and maleic acid, reflecting the burgeoning role of polymers in modern science and technology.
