Prithu Mukhopadhyay is a scientist with IPEX Technologies, Inc. in Montreal, Canada. Since 1997, he has been engaged in R&D as well as manufacturing and quality management for injection molding and extrusion. He earned his master's degree in organic chemistry and his Ph.D. in polymer chemistry from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Prithu is passionate about new plastics technologies, and he has been a member of the New Technology Committee of the Society of Plastics Engineers since 1998. He has chaired the committee in the past, and he has been active in developing New Technology Forums at the Annual Technical Conference of the Society since 2000. He is an expert on plastics piping materials, and he has published and spoken extensively on this and a variety of polymer topics. He is the founding editor of Plasticstrends, an educational website that was established in 2000.
Rakesh K. Gupta is the George B. and Carolyn A. Berry professor and department chairman of chemical engineering at West Virginia University where he has been teaching since 1992. He holds B. Tech. and Ph.D. degrees in chemical engineering from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kanpur, and the University of Delaware, respectively. His research focuses on polymer rheology, polymer processing, and polymer composites. He has published more than 100 journal papers, 65 conference papers, and 12 book chapters on these topics. He also holds three U.S. patents. He is the author of Polymer and Composite Rheology, the coauthor of Fundamentals of Polymer Engineering and the coeditor of Polymer Nanocomposites Handbook.
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.
