Description

The most current guide to solid state polymerization.

Solid State Polymerization (SSP) is an indispensable tool in the design, manufacture, and study of polymers, plastics, and fibers. SSP presents significant advantages over other polymerization techniques due to low operating temperatures, inexpensive equipment, and simple and environmentally sound procedures. Combining fundamentals of polymer science, chemistry, physical chemistry, and engineering, SSP also offers many research applications for a wide range of students and investigators.

Gathering and filtering the latest literature on SSP, Solid Solid State Polymerization offers a unique, one-stop resource on this important process. With chapters contributed by leaders in the field, this text summarizes SSP, and provides essential coverage that includes:

-  An introduction to SSP, with chemical and physical steps, apparatus, advantages, and parameters

-  SSP physical chemistry and mechanisms

-  Kinetic aspects of polyesters and polyamides SSP

-  Catalysis in SSP processes

-  Application of SSP under high pressure conditions in the laboratory

-  Engineering aspects regarding process modeling and industrial application

-  Recent developments and future possibilities

Solid State Polymerization provides the most up-to-date coverage of this constantly developing field to academic and industry professionals, as well as graduate and postgraduate-level students in chemical engineering, materials science and engineering, polymer chemistry, polymer processing and polymer engineering.

Description

Key Features

-  Provides recent findings on the manufacture of environmentally sustainable flame retardant polymeric materials

-  Covers legislation and regulations concerning flame retarded polymeric material use

-  Includes tables containing the fire properties of the most common polymeric materials

Polymer Green Flame Retardants covers key issues regarding the response of polymers during fire, the mechanisms of their flame retardation, the regulations imposed on their use, and the health hazards arising from their combustion. Presenting the latest research developments, the book focuses in particular on nanocomposites, believed to be the most promising approach for producing physically superior materials with low flammability and ecological impact. The fire properties of nanocomposites of various matrices and fillers are discussed, the toxicological characteristics of these materials are analyzed, addressing also their environmental sustainability.

Edited by distinguished scientists, including an array of international industry and academia experts, this book will appeal to chemical, mechanical, environmental, material and process engineers, upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines, and generally to researchers developing commercially attractive and environmentally friendly fire-proof products.
