Description

Hybrid Polymer Composite Materials: Volume 3: Properties and Characterisation presents the latest on these composite materials that can best be described as materials that are comprised of synthetic polymers and biological/inorganic/organic derived constituents. The combination of unique properties that emerge as a consequence of the particular arrangement and interactions between the different constituents provides immense opportunities for advanced material technologies.

This series of four volumes brings an interdisciplinary effort to accomplish a more detailed understanding of the interplay between synthesis, structure, characterization, processing, applications, and performance of these advanced materials, with this volume focusing on their properties and characterization.

Key Features

  • Provides a clear understanding of the present state-of-the-art and the growing utility of hybrid polymer composite materials
  • Includes contributions from world renowned experts and discusses the combination of different kinds of materials procured from diverse resources
  • Discusses their synthesis, chemistry, processing, fundamental properties, and applications
  • Provides insights on the potential of hybrid polymer composite materials for advanced applications

Readership

Polymer and materials scientists, engineers, post-graduate students and industrial researchers and R & D managers who want to bring advanced polymeric material-based products to the market
