Fluoropolymers are very unique materials. Since the middle of the twentieth century fluoropolymers have been used in applications where a wide temperature range, a high resistance to aggressive media, excellent tribological characteristics, and specific low adhesion are required. Today, researchers turn to fluoropolymers to solve new challenges and to develop materials with previously unattainable properties. Fluoropolymers: Applications and Simulation covers recent developments of fluoropolymer applications in energy, optical fibers, blood substitutes, membranes and other areas, written by experts in these fields. A volume in Progress in in Fluorine Science, this volume is ideal for researchers and engineers who want to learn about the technology and applications of these special polymers, as well as industrial manufacturers who are interested in achieving new product characteristics in their respective industries.

Key Features

  • Written by a global team of fluoropolymer experts
  • Includes use of fluoropolymer membranes for various applications in fuel cells, for substances separation, and more
  • Covers fluoropolymer materials with shape memory, in cardiopulmonary bypass systems, in the production of textile materials and in other areas


Fluorine chemistry researchers, who could have a background in organic or inorganic chemistry
