Macromolecular Engineering: Design, Synthesis and Application of Polymers explores the role of macromolecular engineering in the development of polymer systems with engineered structures that offer the desired combination of properties for advanced applications. This book is organized into sections covering theory and principles, science and technology, architectures and technologies, and applications, with an emphasis on the latest advances in techniques, materials, properties, and end uses – and including recently commercialized, or soon to be commercialized, designed polymer systems. The chapters are contributed by a group of leading figures who are actively researching in the field.
This is an invaluable resource for researchers and scientists interested in polymer synthesis and design, across the fields of polymer chemistry, polymer science, plastics engineering, and materials science and engineering. In industry, this book supports engineers, R&D, and scientists working on polymer design for application areas such as biomedical and healthcare, automotive and aerospace, construction and consumer goods.
- Presents the theory, principles, architectures, technologies, and latest advances in macromolecular engineering for polymer design and synthesis
- Explains polymer design for cutting-edge applications areas, including coatings, automotive, industrial, household and medical uses
- Approaches several novel materials, such as polyisobutylene (PIB), polyamide-based polyurethanes, and aliphatic polyesters

Dr. Lubnin graduated from the University of St. Petersburg, Russia. Before coming to America, he conducted research at the Central Synthetic Rubber Research Institute (VNIISK) in St. Petersburg. At the end of 1990 when “Perestroika” brought an end to the “iron curtain”, Dr. Lubnin was invited by Professor Kennedy to work in his labs as a Visiting Scientist. In 1995, he accepted an R&D position with the BFGoodrich Co., presently Lubrizol, where he is currently a Technical Fellow. Dr. Lubnin has ~80 publications including 25 granted patents.

Dr. Erdodi holds a Ph.D. in organic chemistry which he received working under the guidance of professor Bela Ivan in Hungary working on living polymerization of polyisobutylene and amphiphilic conetworks. He worked at the University of Akron on macromolecular design by living polymerizations, biomaterial projects, including the development of membranes for bioartificial pancreas, polymers for contact lenses, and polyurethanes. Dr. Gabor Erdodi has been working at Lubrizol Performance Coatings for 8 years in new product development. He invented polyamide-based polyurethanes, which is a novel polyurethane type and created a technology platform with a rapidly growing family of new products. Dr. Erdodi is the author of 30 scientific publications in peer reviewed journals, and inventor in 26 issued patents
