The Wiley Series on Polymer Engineering and Technology
Editor-in-Chief: Richard F. Grossman
Co-editor: Domasius Nwabunma
About the Series:
Elastomer and plastics technology continues to expand rapidly and as a result the range of applications has grown substantially, both from replacement of other materials and from new innovations, as have the possibilities for cross-fertilization that can lead to breakthroughs in research and development. The number and types of additives used in polymeric compositions also becomes broader daily. It is necessary for the polymer technologist to develop such familiarity in order to innovate by drawing conclusions from widely separated experiments and observations. The purpose of this series is to assist polymer technologists by providing an innovation bookshelf.
