Description

Hypercrosslinked network polymers present a new class of polymeric materials with very wide application possibilities, including adsorption technology, ion exchange, HPLC, analytical chemistry, nanotechnology (nanocomposites), medical polymers

Key Features

  • First book describing the theory, practice of preparation and use of polymeric adsorbing materials with the emphasis on new hypercrosslinked polystyrene-type polymers
  • Written by the originators of the concept of hypercrosslinked polymers
  • Complex phenomena are explained by appealing to common sense, analogies and well-known effects, rather than complex mathematical treatment and computer modelling
  • Reviews many Russian, German and even Czech language publications
  • Contains numerous experimental data in the form of Figures and Tables


      

Readership

Chemistry and materials science researchers working on properties of polymeric materials, and new approaches to solving actual problems in separation science and new approaches to green chemistry; chemical engineers and polymer technologists; graduate and PhD students.
