Comprised of carefully curated chapters previously published by Prof. Ruckenstein and colleagues, this two-volume set offers a comprehensive overview of functional and modified polymeric materials focusing on concentrated emulsion polymerization, conducting polymers, living ionic polymerization, degradable polymers, polymer membranes, and polymer-inorganic hybrid materials. The first volume presents functional and modified polymer materials prepared by concentrated emulsion polymerization approaches. The second covers functional and modified polymer materials prepared mainly through solution polymerization and surface polymerization.
Table of Contents
Volume 1. Concentrated Emulsion Polymerization. 1. Conductive Polymer Composites. 2. Core-Shell Latex Particles. 3. Enzyme/Catalyst Carriers. 4. Plastics Toughening and Compatibilization. Volume 2. Solution and Surface Polymerization. 1. Functional Polymers by Living Ionic Polymerization. 2. Degradable and Decrosslinkable Polymers. 3. Semi- and Interpenetrating Polymer Network Pervaporation Membranes. 4. Soluble Conducting Polymers. 5. Preparation and Modification of Conductive Surface by Blending, Polymerization in Swollen Surface Layers, and Graft Polymerization.

CPD consists of any educational activity which helps to maintain and develop knowledge, problem-solving, and technical skills with the aim to provide better health care through higher standards. It could be through conference attendance, group discussion or directed reading to name just a few examples.
Use certain CRC Press medical books to get your CPD points up for revalidation. We provide a free online form to document your learning and a certificate for your records.
