About the Author
Michael Buback is Professor for Physical Chemistry at the University Goettingen. He has received numerous awards, e.g. the Carl-Duisberg Prize of the German Chemical Society, the Bunsen-Denkmünze and the Hermann F. Mark Medal. His research interests are radical polymerization, chemical processes in extended ranges of temperature and pressure, chemical reactions in supercritical fluid phase and vibrational spectroscopy up to high pressures and temperatures.
Professor Alex van Herk is full professor in polymer chemistry in Eindhoven and visiting professor at the University of Göttingen (Germany). He is a member of the IUPAC working party on modelling of polymerization kinetics and a member of the international polymer colloids group. Since june 2001 he is director of the educational program in the faculty of chemical engineering and chemistry in Eindhoven. Furthermore he is chairman of the industrial liaison program emulsion polymerization (SEP).
