Comprehensive Book on In-Situ Production of Polymer Nanocomposites

Published on April 5, 2012 at 1:47 AM

By Cameron Chai

Research and Markets has included a new book titled ‘In-situ Synthesis of Polymer Nanocomposites’ to its catalogue.

John Wiley and Sons’ new book helps readers to understand the proven strategies and drawbacks in the production of various kinds of polymer nanocomposites. The book also discusses the processing conditions and other controlling factors required for the synthesis of the nanocomposites.

The book starts with an overview describing various synthesis techniques of polymer nanocomposites. The text then describes in detail about the synthesis of most relevant polymers such as polyepoxides, polyesters, polyurethanes, polyethylenes, polyacrylates, polyolefines and polyamides.

Key topics discussed in the comprehensive book include In-situ Synthesis of polymer nanocomposites; polyamide nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization; polyolefin-clay nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization; gas-phase-assisted surface polymerization and thereby preparation of polymer nanocomposites; pet clay nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization; control of filler phase dispersion in bio-based nanocomposites by in-situ reactive polymerization; polyurethane nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization approach and their properties; in-situ synthesis and properties of epoxy nanocomposites; unsaturated polyester-montmorillonite nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization; polymer clay nanocomposites by in-situ atom transfer radical polymerization; polybutadiene clay nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization; p3ht-mwnt nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization and their properties; polystyrene-montmorillonite nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization and their properties; and aliphatic polyester and poly(ester amide) clay nanocomposites by in-situ polymerization.

Author of the book is Vikas Mittal, who serves as an Assistant Professor at The Petroleum Institute’s Chemical Engineering Department. Mittal has written more than 40 scientific publications, patents and book chapters on various subjects, including polymer nanocomposites, thermal stability improvements, advanced filler surface modifications, polymer latexes with functionalized surfaces and much more.
