Functional Polymers by Post-Polymerization Modification: by Patrick Theato,Harm-Anton Klok

By Patrick Theato,Harm-Anton Klok

n sleek polymer technological know-how quite a few polymerization equipment for the direct synthesis of polymers bearing useful teams are recognized. besides the fact that, there's nonetheless various practical teams that can both thoroughly hinder polymerization or result in aspect reactions. Post-polymerization amendment, sometimes called polymer-analogous amendment, is another method of conquer those obstacles. it truly is in accordance with the polymerization of monomers with practical teams which are inert in the direction of the polymerization stipulations yet permit a quantitative conversion in a next response step yielding a extensive variety of alternative sensible teams. hence, various libraries of sensible polymers with exact common levels of polymerization yet variable facet chain performance could simply be generated.

Filling the distance for a e-book facing artificial innovations and up to date advancements, this quantity presents a accomplished and up to date review of the sphere of post-polymerization amendment.

As such, the foreign workforce of professional authors covers quite a lot of themes, together with new man made options using varied reactive teams for post-polymerization ameliorations with examples starting from amendment of biomimetic and organic polymers to amendment of surfaces.

With its instructions this can be an integral and interdisciplinary reference for scientists operating in either educational and commercial polymer research.
