Description

There is a growing demand for strategies to address the impact of polymers and plastics in ecosystems. The principles of green chemistry offer a good source of such strategies. Ecofriendly Functional Polymers: An Approach from Application-Targeted Green Chemistry provides a holistic overview of polymer chemistry, development, and applications in the context of these sustainability-driven principles. It encourages researchers to consider the principles of green chemistry, environmental impacts, and end-user needs as integral aspects for consideration at the earliest stages of any design process, and draws together key aspects of polymer chemistry, organic synthesis, experimental design, and applications in a single volume.

Beginning with an authoritative guide to fundamental polymer chemistry and its impact in the current environmental context, the book then discusses a range of key theoretical and experimental aspects of designing eco-friendly functional polymers. Applications of ecofriendly functional polymers across an entire range of fields are discussed, and a selection of case studies highlights the implementation of theoretical and experimental information to address a broad selection of issues.

Key Features

  • Highlights the physicochemical principles of green chemistry and the development of biodegradable and recyclable polymers in this context
  • Compiles key information connecting structural features with properties, experimental strategies, and appropriate applications into a single volume
  • Discusses requirements and applications across a broad range of fields, supported by practical examples

Readership

Physical and theoretical chemists, polymer chemists, green chemists, environmental chemists. Scientists who work with polymers in any way across materials and environmental science, agro-science, biochemistry, pharmaceutical science and toxicology, across both industry and academia
