Description

The International Workshop on Liquid Crystalline Polymers (LCPs) held in June 1993 in Italy attracted many of the leading researchers in this area of polymer science. The meeting provided a forum for the exchange of research and ideas on current developments and future research and applications of liquid crystalline polymers.

This volume consists of a selection of the best papers presented at the meeting covering synthesis and characterization, liquid crystalline thermosets, rheology, blends and composites containing LCPs and transport properties.

Readership

For polymer chemists and materials scientists in universities and industry, interested in current and future directions of experimentation and applications of LCPs.

Reviews

@from:Subhash Makhija @qu:This book provides a good source of current information in this rapidly evolving field. @source:Polymer News @from:G.W. Gray @qu:The book will interest both liquid crystal and polymer specialists wishing to learn how their specialisms may mutually interest and possibly lead to further uses for self-organizing polymeric materials. @source:Polymer International
