Functional Coatings: By Polymer Microencapsulation (352731296X) cover image


This first book to concentrate on providing a concise, representative overview of polymer microencapsulation for novel organic coatings and all its chemical and engineering aspects collates the literature hitherto spread out among journals in various disciplines. It covers all the important methods for carrying out microencapsulations, including in situ polymerization, phase separation, emulsification, grinding and spray drying. The result is a solid, introduction from first-hand practitioners working in industry and research institutions for newcomers to the field. It is equally vital reading for professionals already active in the area needing to stay abreast of developments.
