About this Book

The Encyclopedia of Polymer Science and Technology, 4th Edition, with a Foreword by Dr. Krzysztof Matyjaszewski, Carnegie Mellon University, presents over 400 articles, written and reviewed by specialists from all over the world, and serves as a unique source of reference to the entire field of polymer science and technology.

First published in 1964, the Encyclopedia has been used for 50 years as a powerful instrument of learning and teaching, and an important source of information for students, researchers, producers and users of polymeric materials, as well as other professionals, owing to its comprehensive coverage, up-to-date information, and authoritative, cohesive, and clear presentation.

Articles in the Encyclopedia cover the fundamental and practical aspects of the polymer field, including polymeric materials, polymer properties, polymerization methods, processing, and uses. Special emphasis is put on new and advanced polymeric materials for various applications (e.g. coating, water filtration, energy, and biomedical applications, etc.), new and improved characterization and analytical methods, and modern processing technology.

Updated quarterly with new and revised articles, the online Encyclopedia is an invaluable resource for researchers in both library and professional settings.

Now Available: Encyclopedia of Polymer Science and Technology, 4th edition, 15-volume print set.
