NEW TECHNOLOGIES: Special Article Series on 'New Production and Enabling Technologies in Polymer Reaction Engineering'
K. D. Hungenberg
It is about 30 to 40 years that 'Polymer Reaction Engineering' (PRE) became a scientific discipline of its own, thanks to the "forerunners" like Böhm, Hamielec, Ray, Reichert and Sinn. Since then, the polymer industry and also polymer research have changed dramatically.
Guest-edited by Klaus-Dieter Hungenberg (BASF SE), the new article series "New Production and Enabling Technologies in Polymer Reaction Engineering" will highlight the most important developments and trends in PRE. It is dedicated to research results on new and improved production technologies, but also to new developments in tools and enabling technologies.
