Verlagsinformation :: Publisher's information

Encyclopedia of Materials: Plastics and Polymers, Four Volume Set covers plastics and polymeric materials, including their fundamental properties, current and potential future application areas in various private, public, commercial and industrial sectors, and their biodegradability, reusability and disposability. As well as covering all aspects of the science and applications of plastics and polymers, the book expounds on newer developments, including up-to-date articles and knowledge. In addition, the detrimental environmental effects of plastics and polymers are included, along with expertly-written articles that shed light on composites of macro, micro- and nano-particle sized plastic and polymeric materials and biodegradable natural or synthetic materials. This encyclopedia will be most valuable to researchers working at the interface between materials science/chemistry and materials engineering, as well as advanced undergraduates who need to quickly understand a broad range of foundational concepts and the developments that have taken place over time.

Key features/benefits

  • Comprehensive coverage a fully integrated compendium of information on all aspects of plastics & polymers
  • Special focus on the environmental and health implications of using products made from these materials and on their safe disposal.
  • Thematic arrangement makes it easy to browse, search, and to contextualize information on different materials, their applications, and their benefits and drawbacks/strengths and weaknesses.
  • Brand new content complemented by making available an important component of revised, top quality foundational reference material from the landmark Encyclopedia of Materials: Science and Technology.

What problem does this MRW solve?

Researchers and engineers using these materials come from a diverse range of expertise and approaches. They currently have to obtain information from different sources, which can be overwhelming and time-consuming. In addition, although journals may be unsurpassed for articles on the most recent developments, researchers working in adjacent fields and early career researchers/undergraduates may need to read around these articles a lot in order to build the foundational knowledge needed to fully understand them. This ambitious and expertly curated work provides a one stop resource with up-to-date, comprehensive, reliable and balanced information to help researchers at all levels to make decisions confidently and quickly.

Important Areas of Coverage:

  • Fundamentals of Thermoset and Thermoplastic Polymers & their Recycling and Sustainability
  • Polymer Composites
